Sheila Hiestand, partner at McCoy & Hiestand, PLC received the Peter Perlman Outstanding Trial Lawyer Award.
This Peter Perlman award is given to an attorney who demonstrates exceptional talent as a trial practitioner. It honors a lawyer who fights for the rights of consumers, shares his or her legal talents with young lawyers and other members of the bar, and gives back to the legal profession by working to protect America’s constitutional right to trial by jury.
For the past seventeen years Sheila has been litigating complex cases including medical malpractice, Federal Torts Claims Acts, government litigation, and school law. With hard work and dedication Sheila has won millions of dollars for her clients and always served as an advocate for injured people.
“I am so thrilled and honored to have received this award,” Hiestand said, “Pete Perlman is a Stalwart in Kentucky’s legal community, and to be included in the fine group of attorneys to be named a Pete Perlman Outstanding Attorney is truly humbling.
The Peter Perlman Outstanding Trial Lawyer award was created in 1994 and is presented annually at the Kentucky Justice Association convention.
