In recognition of his hard work and accomplishments, attorney Joseph Kenneff has been selected by The American Society of Legal Advocates as a “Top 40 Criminal Defense Lawyer Under 40 in the state of Pennsylvania for 2017.”
According to the ASLA, the selection process consists of a rigorous, manual review:
“ASLA’s lawyers comprehensively review available information for each candidate, including a review of firm websites, client assessments, and publicly-available filings, which may include: verdicts, settlement information, and information regarding transactions. Each candidate is assessed based on such criteria as educational accomplishments, involvement and leadership in bar associations and professional organizations, activities within their community, and demonstrated legal achievement. In the case of younger lawyers, ASLA also evaluates indications of developing success, both in a candidate’s day-to-day practice and in serving the profession.
Each area of assessment is considered, and each candidate is assessed on his or her own merits. Just as the student body of an elite university is comprised of individuals with many different backgrounds and strengths, ASLA likewise strives to invite a range of members who have stellar legal credentials as a baseline, but also a range of interests and activities.
After the initial list of nominees is prepared, at least one separate lawyer reviews all compiled data and confirms nominations. To ensure the integrity of the process, no lawyer who participated in the first phase of selection is permitted to conduct the second phase. In the final stage, the list of finalists is again reviewed and candidates either are confirmed for invitation or placed on a holding list for reconsideration the following year.”
With offices now in Lancaster, PA and Millersville, PA, Attorney Joseph Kenneff continues to provide aggressive legal counsel for the accused in Lancaster County. Along with Criminal Law, Attorney Kenneff continues to specialize in Family Law, providing personal and honest advice to each client.
