August 25, 2022

Charleston, West Virginia – Bowles Rice LLP attorney Amy J. Tawney was recently recognized by Best Lawyers® as the 2023 “Lawyer of the Year” for Banking and Finance Law in the Charleston, West Virginia metro region.

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.

This marks the second time Tawney has been named the Best Lawyers® “Lawyer of the Year” for Banking and Finance Law in the Charleston, West Virginia region; she first received the honor in 2021. Additionally, Tawney has been recognized – since 2011 – by The Best Lawyers in America® for her work in both Banking and Finance Law and Corporate Law.
