Leah Pappas Porner Named “Lawyer of the Year” for Government Relations in Columbus

Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the Best Lawyers "Lawyer of the Year," making this accolade particularly significant. Leah Pappas Porner, Calfee’s Columbus Partner-in-Charge and Chair of the Government Relations Practice, was selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer review assessments. Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for legal abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
