Melissa M. Barr, Thomas H. May Named 2021 Best Lawyers® ‘Lawyer of the Year’

Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote attorneys Melissa M. Barr and Thomas H. May were recently recognized by Best Lawyers® as the 2021 “Lawyer of the Year.”

Ms. Barr is honored for Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants in the Morgantown, WV area, and Mr. May has been named for Employment Law – Management in the Pittsburgh market.

“I am honored to receive this award from my peers. I’m just very lucky to practice with such a great group of professionals,” said Ms. Barr.

In addition to the “Lawyer of the Year” award, Mr. May was also listed in the 2021 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America® for Labor Law – Management, and Litigation – Labor and Employment.

“To be selected as Pittsburgh Lawyer of the Year in Employment Law by The Best Lawyers in America® is a great honor, particularly because it is based on the opinions of my peers,” Mr. May explained.

Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant. These lawyers are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer review assessments.

Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence.
