Danny Onorato Is Named Best Lawyers® “Lawyer of the Year” for Criminal Defense in the Washington, D.C. Area


AUGUST 2022

Schertler Onorato Mead & Sears founding partner Danny Onorato has been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America® as the 2023 “Lawyer of the Year” for criminal defense (general practice) in the Washington, D.C. area. Only one lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant. SOM&S partner David Schertler received the same honor in 2021. Receiving the “Lawyer of the Year” designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same community and practice area for their expertise, professionalism, and integrity. In addition to receiving the 2023 “Lawyer of the Year” award, Mr. Onorato was also listed in the 2023 edition of Best Lawyers in the field of white-collar criminal defense.
