5 Davis Levin Livingston Attorneys in Best Lawyers®


Davis Levin Livingston is pleased to announce that Best Lawyers® selected five of our attorneys for The Best Lawyers in America© 2021 Edition. One of these attorneys was further awarded as a 2021 Best Lawyers® “Lawyer of the Year” in his practice area. Both of these distinctions celebrate our attorneys’ outstanding legal skills.

Inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America is a renowned achievement, as it only lists the top 5% of practicing lawyers across the country. Thus, to be selected, attorneys must be nominated by a third-party. After that, selected nominees are diligently reviewed by their peers to determine whether their career histories and legal prowess warrant selection to the final list.

The Davis Levin Livingston attorneys selected for The Best Lawyers in America 2021 include:

  • Mark S. Davis
    • Insurance Law
    • Litigation - First Amendment
    • Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs
    • Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs
  • Michael K. Livingston
    • Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs
    • Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs
  • Thomas M. Otake
    • Criminal Defense: General Practice
    • Criminal Defense: White-Collar
    • Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs
  • Loretta A. Sheehan
    • Commercial Litigation
    • Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs
  • Matthew C. Winter
    • Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs

As a result of their continued commitment to advocating for the victims of personal injury litigation, each one of these attorneys was previously named in The Best Lawyers in America. Specifically, Attorneys Davis and Livingston were first mentioned in the 2011 Edition; Attorneys Otake and Sheehan were included since the 2019 Edition; and Attorney Winter was mentioned for the first time in last year’s 2020 Edition.

Besides his listing in The Best Lawyers in America, Attorney Otake received the Best Lawyers® 2021 Criminal Defense: White-Collar “Lawyer of the Year” award in Honolulu. Every year, this title is granted to the attorney who received the highest overall peer-feedback for their legal practice area and region during the selection process for The Best Lawyers in America.

At Davis Levin Livingston, our attorneys have been similarly recognized by The Lawdragon 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyers Guide, the Super Lawyers® list, and The Inner Circle of Advocates.
