Pittman Dutton & Hellums is pleased to announce that Leigh King Forstman was highlighted as one of the area’s leading female attorneys by Avvo, a well-respected attorney ranking system.

Forstman is among the list of distinguished companies, which you can find here. You may also find interesting the history of Birmingham’s female attorney community. For example, it’s been 21 years since the Women Lawyers Section of the Birmingham Bar Association was founded.

Avvo ratings are calculated mathematically based on a number of factors deemed important in the search for an attorney. It’s independently calculated and cannot be “bought.”

This is the latest distinction for Forstman, who has been practicing law for nearly 25 years. She was previously selected for the 2011 Inaugural Edition of the Bar Register of Preeminent Women Lawyers in the field of Civil Trial Practice. This was because of her AV rating by the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory – the highest possible rating.
