2019 Southwest Super Lawyers Recognizes Five Sherman & Howard Attorneys

John Alan Doran named Top 50 in Arizona

Phoenix, Arizona (April 15, 2019) – Sherman & Howard is pleased to announce that five attorneys have been selected to the 2019 Southwest Super Lawyers list.

No more than five percent of lawyers in the Southwest region are selected by Super Lawyers, and the rigorous criteria for selection includes an evaluation of 12 indicators of professional achievement and peer recognition.

As a part of this recognition, Lindsay Hesketh and Matthew Hesketh were named 2019 Southwest Rising Stars, a distinction awarded to less than 2.5 percent of attorneys in each state who are under 40 and have been in practice for 10 years or less.

Rounding out the group of Sherman & Howard honorees is John Alan Doran, who was selected to the Arizona Top 50 list for his exemplary work in the firm’s Labor & Employment Group.

Sherman & Howard, an Am Law 200 law firm based in Denver, Colorado, has 28 attorneys practicing litigation, labor & employment, estate planning, real estate, and public finance in the Phoenix-Scottsdale office.



Super Lawyers, part of Thomson Reuters, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.
