Cumberland-based Taylor English Duma LLP announced the inclusion of 14 of its attorneys among The Best Lawyers in America for 2015.
One of the oldest and most distinguished legal directories, Best Lawyers conducts peer-review surveys to compile its annual list of top attorneys in 128 practice areas in 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The Taylor English attorneys selected for inclusion in the 2015 guide are:
- William A. Clineburg Jr.: Employment Law — Management, and Litigation — Labor and Employment;
- W. Scott Creasman: Copyright Law, Litigation — Intellectual Property, Litigation — Patent, and Trademark Law;

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which about 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
