(WICHITA, Kan.) – Wichita attorney Ross Hollander has been selected as one of the country’s most outstanding labor and employment lawyers by Chambers USA 2009. Inclusion in Chambers USA is based on the publication’s independent interviews with both lawyers and clients — with greater emphasis given to client evaluations. Lawyers are then ranked based on criteria most valued by clients: technical legal ability, client service, business acumen, diligence, and professional conduct. Rankings also reflect pre-eminence in the attorney’s key practice area and achievement in the past year.
Hollander enters the list this year “due to his excellent track record and commendable feedback from clients,” according to Chambers USA, which has published global guides to the legal profession since 1990. Hollander focuses primarily on employment law, acting for either plaintiff or defense in discrimination and unlawful discharge cases.
“It’s gratifying to be held in such high esteem within the legal profession, and particularly so when that honor stems, in part, from clients’ opinions of you as their advocate,” Hollander said.
Hollander is a past president of the Wichita Bar Association, and past president of the Kansas Bar Association’s Employment Law Section. Additionally, he is a member of the American Bar Association, Kansas Association of Defense Counsel, and Defense Research Institute.
Hollander, a partner and shareholder in the Wichita, Kan., firm of Joseph & Hollander, PA, has practiced in Wichita for more than 30 years. A graduate of Wichita State University, Hollander received his J.D. from the University of Kansas School of Law.
The Wichita and Topeka offices of Joseph & Hollander, PA, include 10 lawyers. The firm’s primary practice areas include complex criminal defense, civil litigation, employment law, health care non-compliance, commercial law and family law.
