SAN DIEGO (October 5, 2011) — Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps LLP, a prominent California law firm with a national reputation, is proud to announce that Best Lawyers has named partners Michael T. Andrew and Louis A. Mezzullo as “Best Lawyers’ 2012 Lawyers of the Year.”

Andrew was named the “Best Lawyers’ 2012 San Diego Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law Lawyer of the Year,” and Mezzullo was selected as the “Best Lawyers’ 2012 San Diego Employee Benefits (ERISA) Law Lawyer of the Year.” Both attorneys 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.
