The Lawyers of Distinction is pleased to announce Rebecca M. Pepin, and James C. Shanor have been certified as distinguished 2022 Members of Lawyers of Distinction.
Lawyers of Distinction is the fastest growing community of distinguished lawyers in the United States. Members are accepted based on an objective evaluation of the attorney’s qualifications, license, reputation, experience, and disciplinary history. Please see: Lawyers of Distinction: How to Become a Member for further details concerning membership qualifications.
Rebecca M. Pepin is an integral part of our family law division at Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. She cares about the people who seek her help with family law, divorce, and child custody issues. Her extensive experience enables her to handle highly contested family law matters, including cases involving complex child issues, high net worth, or complex property division.
“I wanted to work with people and help them solve problems and minimize conflict. I also wanted to assist people through a system in which they often feel confused or helpless.”
James C. Shanor’s practice with Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin focuses mainly on business, real estate, and construction. With a broad legal background and a pragmatic approach, James prides himself in serving his clients as a trusted advisor and an effective litigator.
“My overall goal in working with clients is to be an effective advocate for their interests. To help achieve this goal, we work to ensure every client receives the time and attention they deserve. Whether it be in a transaction or the courtroom, my focus is to provide results-oriented advice and to aggressively pursue my client’s objectives.”
Lawyers of Distinction Members have been selected based upon a review and vetting process by our Selection Committee utilizing U.S. Provisional Patent # 62/743,254. The platform generates a numerical score of 1 to 5 for each of the 12 enumerated factors, which are meant to recognize the applicant’s achievements and peer recognition. All applicants must be licensed to practice law. Members are then subject to a final review for ethical violations within the past ten years before membership confirmation. A Lawyers of Distinction Nomination does not guarantee membership, and attorneys may not pay a fee to be nominated. Attorneys may nominate to Lawyers of Distinction the peers they feel warrant consideration. Whether an attorney qualifies for membership is based upon the aforementioned proprietary analysis discussed above. Membership is not meant to infer any endorsement of Lawyers of Distinction by any of the 50 United States Bar Associations or The District of Columbia Bar Association. Any references to “excellent,” “excellence,” or “distinguished” are meant to refer to the Lawyers of Distinction organization only and not to any named member individually.
