Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith & Davis LLP’s Arthur M. Greenbaum as the “New Jersey Best Lawyers Real Estate Lawyer of the Year” for 2009.

After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers is designating “Lawyers of the Year” in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities, and only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.” The lawyers being honored as “Lawyers of the Year” have received particularly high ratings in Best Lawyers surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.

Steven Naifeh, Managing Editor of Best Lawyers, says, “We would like to congratulate Arthur on being selected as the “New Jersey Best Lawyers Real Estate Lawyer of the Year for 2009.”

Mr. Greenbaum was the first recipient of the Monmouth University Real Estate Institute Leadership Excellence Award (1994) and received an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Monmouth University in 1996. In 2005 he received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from Rutgers University School of Law, Newark and in 2007 he was the recipient of the Industry Service Award from the New Jersey Chapter of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NJ-NAIOP).
