Gregory R. Gifford Named 2015 Trial Lawyer of the Year

Norristown, PA -  Each year, the Trial Lawyers Section of the Montgomery Bar Association presents the James P. Fox Award to an individual who has demonstrated exceptional skill as a civil litigation and trial lawyer.  This year, at a November 17 ceremony at the Bar, the award was given to Gregory R. Gifford, Esq. 

Gifford, currently a partner in the Lansdale firm of Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg and Gifford, epitomizes the criteria of this prestigious award, which recognizes not only proficiency in the courtroom but also a dedication to promoting a positive image for attorneys through his own professional demeanor, service and integrity.  
In addition, the award seeks to acknowledge an attorney who has created a reputation among his peers as a daunting adversary, while remaining a respected colleague, a quality the Trial Lawyers recognize in Gifford.
