Bruce Devlin Named Among Best Lawyers in America

SPRINGFIELD — Crear, Chadwell, Dos Santos & Devlin, P.C. announced that attorney Bruce Devlin was recently selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2016 in the field of trust and estates.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become regarded as a definitive guide to legal excellence, based on an exhaustive peer-review survey. More than 79,000 leading attorneys have cast more than 6.2 million votes to date on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

“As a peer-review survey, Best Lawyers is a comprehensive analysis of legal expertise in the area, and I am humbled and honored to be among the attorneys to be listed,” said Devlin. “The Best Lawyers lists are the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals.”

Devlin has worked in both the legal and accounting professions. He founded the law firm Frankel Devlin, LLC, where he worked from 2007 through mid-June 2014, when he joined Crear, Chadwell, Dos Santos & Devlin.

Devlin has effectively incorporated his tax background into his legal expertise, focusing on business law, wills, trusts, and other aspects of estate planning, probate, estate administration, taxation, and elder law. He holds a legal master’s degree in taxation, which he earned following his graduation from law school.
