Aug. 16, 2017 J. Rod Betts named 2018 Best Lawyers® “Lawyer of the Year” in San Diego.

Paul, Plevin, Sullivan & Connaughton LLP partner J. Rod Betts has been recognized by Best Lawyers as the 2018 “Lawyer of the Year” for Labor Law - Management in the San Diego area.

Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant. These lawyers are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer review assessments.

Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.

“Rod Betts has been a leader in the San Diego labor and employment community for over 30 years,” said Fred Plevin, managing partner of Paul, Plevin, Sullivan & Connaughton. “This recognition is once again, very well deserved.”

Rod has been twice previously named “Lawyer of the Year” in San Diego; in 2015 for Litigation – Labor and Employment and in 2013 for Management – Labor.

In addition to the “Lawyer of the Year” award, Rod was also once again listed in the 2018 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America. This is the 10th consecutive year Rod has been listed in Best Lawyers.
