9.15.12 Parmenter O’Toole is proud to announce that John C. Schrier has been selected for inclusion in the 2012 Michigan Super Lawyers list in the practice area of Public Sector Government/Cities/Municipalities. Only five percent of Michigan attorneys are chosen each year.
Super Lawyers selects attorneys based on three distinct phases. The first step includes a statewide nomination process where attorneys nominate their peers based on what they have personally observed. The Super Lawyers researchers then evaluate candidates based on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Lastly, candidates receive a “blue ribbon” panel review by practice area.
“I’m honored that attorneys representing municipalities would nominate me,” said Schrier. “I’m fortunate to have been well-trained by Tom Johnson, Mike Knowlton, and the late Tom O’Toole, all former partners at Parmenter O’Toole. I have also had the pleasure of working with a number of very fine municipal employees, officials and attorneys.”
