Dickinson, Mackaman, Tyler & Hagen, P.C. is pleased to announce that once again attorneys of the firm have been named by Best Lawyers to all three of its recognition lists for 2023.

Based on peer reviews, those recognized by Best Lawyers were honored for their work in 25 different areas of law and represent three-fourths of the firm’s attorneys.

Highlights include:

  • Two distinguished attorneys were honored as “Lawyer of the Year” in their respective areas of law in Des Moines:
  • 19 attorneys with extensive experience, including two newly-honored lawyers, were included in The Best Lawyers in America, and:
  • Four rising lawyers were recognized in the third edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch.

Lawyers of the Year

Two attorneys from Dickinson Law were named “Lawyer of the Year” for 2023 in three areas of law, including:

Amy Plummer - Banking and Finance Law and Closely Held Companies and Family Businesses Law

Ronald L. Mountsier  - Tax Law

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 metropolitan area and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.
