SPRINGFIELD, MO: Joseph Passanise has once again been recognized as one of the” Best Lawyers in America” for Criminal Defense: General Practice and White-Collar as well as DUI/DWI Defense in the 24th addition of The Best Lawyers in America. In addition, Mr. Passanise was named the 2018, MO Criminal Defense: White Collar “Lawyer of the Year.” This marks the 11th straight year that Mr. Passanise has been named as a “Best Lawyer in America” as well as his third “Lawyer of the Year” award.
Inclusion in Best Lawyers is granted only after an extensive peer review process that has been constantly refined over the years. This rigorous selection process means that few lawyers meet the necessary standards. The Lawyer of the Year award is even more selective, as it is only given to the lawyer with the highest peer-feedback in a geographic area as well as specific area of practice.
