    Grand Rapids, Mich., August 19, 2019 – Two attorneys from Smith Haughey Rice & Roegge’s Holland office were recently selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2020.

    Best Lawyers is the oldest peer-review publication in the legal profession. A listing in Best Lawyers is widely regarded by both clients and legal professionals as a significant honor, conferred on a lawyer by his or her peers (Copyright 2019 by Woodward/White, Inc. of Aiken, SC). All included lawyers must first be nominated by their peers, and then voted for by a certain number of listed lawyers who take part in the survey. 

    Jack Marquis was selected in three categories:
    Business Organizations (including LLCs and Partnerships)
    Health Care Law 
    Tax Law
