David Herr, head of Maslon's Appellate Practice Group, was recently recognized as "Minneapolis Appellate Lawyer of the Year
" for 2010 by Best Lawyers
compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current, 16th edition of The Best Lawyers in America
(2010), is based on more than 2.8 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers. Only a single lawyer in each practice area in each community is being honored as the "Lawyer of the Year" for 2010. The lawyers being honored as "Lawyers of the Year" were selected because, during the past two surveys, they received particularly high ratings from most of their peers. In some cases, they also received particularly effusive comments from some of those same peers. The selected lawyers have earned a high level of respect among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.
David Herr is a highly regarded appellate lawyer and handles complex litigation cases. He is frequently sought out to provide practical and sophisticated advice on how to resolve difficult, multi-party disputes in trial courts and arbitral forums, as well as in the appellate courts. Herr served as President of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers (2006-2007) and President of the Academy of Court Appointed Masters (2007-2008). He regularly argues cases in the Minnesota appellate courts and the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals.
