Howland Evangelista Kohlenberg Burnett LLP Congratulates our attorneys and the Firm on being recognized by Best Lawyers in America.

Posted November, 05 2015 | Providence, RI

HEKB LLP is pleased to announce that three of its partners have been recognized by their peers for inclusion in the 2016 edition of The Best Lawyers in America®, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. 

We congratulate the following attorneys for their long-term recognition as Best Lawyers:

Renee A.R. Evangelista

Kinnaird Howland

Max Kohlenberg

The firm was also named to the Best Law Firms, Regional Tier 1 list, for 2016 in the area of Trusts & Estates. 

The “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a combination of client feedback, information provided on the Law Firm Survey and the Law Firm Leaders Survey and Best Lawyers peer-review. Achieving this high ranking is a distinction and honor that is a testament to the reputation we've earned for providing highly customized, creative and compassionate estate planning advisory services.

About Best Lawyers

Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession and 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. For more than three decades, Best Lawyers lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media, and the public, as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.

According to the Best Lawyers website, the publication conducts exhaustive peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. If the votes for an attorney are positive enough for inclusion in Best Lawyers, that attorney must maintain those votes in subsequent polls to remain on the list for each edition.

Howland Evangelista Kohlenberg Burnett LLP, a dedicated Trusts & Estates boutique law firm, was founded in 2014 by former Edwards Wildman Palmer (now Locke Lord) attorneys.  HEKB brings decades of collective knowledge, experience and integrity to solving client issues and taking the time to find thoughtful solutions for each and every client.
