The magazine is a culture and lifestyle publication covering Philadelphia’s Main Line and its western suburbs. For 2011, it named Widener Law graduates tops in eight legal specialties, and recognized 57 more for being outstanding in their practice areas. Four of the alumni, Gregory LaMonaca, Scott R. Reidenbach, David R. Cherry and Timothy Rayne, were voted tops in their specialty for the second consecutive year.

The magazine accepted nominations in 15 practice areas and hundreds of votes were cast to determine who would be named the best.

“I am so pleased to see our alumni singled out in this way,” Law Dean Linda L. Ammons said. “We already know Widener Law graduates are leaders, but it is gratifying to see these professionals recognized for the respect they command among their peers in the legal community.”
