Lawdragon 500 Announces 2021 500 Leading Lawyers: Sher & Garner Named

Sher Garner Cahill Richter Klein & Hilbert, L.L.C. is pleased to announce the recent accomplishments of its two managing partners Leopold Z. Sher and James M. Garner.

One of only 34 in the country, Mr. Sher has been inducted to the 2021 Lawdragon 500 Hall of Fame. According to the website lawdragon.com, the inductees are “among the most acclaimed of their generation, having led America’s signature law firms to unprecedented heights, achieved civil rights advances and changed our world for the better.” Mr. Sher has been recognized by Lawdragon as a leading lawyer for 14 years, and he was named a Lawdragon “Legend” in 2017.

Lawdragon also announced its list of 2021 Leading Lawyers in America. James M. Garner has been consecutively named to this prestigious list (since 2007) for his 32 years of litigation. According to Lawdragon’s website, this annual list is “the most elite distinction in the profession, covering the best of the best in all practice areas.” They “represent the remarkable talent that is the U.S. legal profession.” Mr. Garner was also named to the elite list of Lawdragon Legends in 2017.

In addition to their longtime inclusion in the Lawdragon guide, Sher and Garner were featured in Lawdragon’s Lawyer Limelight in 2015. The interview centered around Hurricane Katrina, from Sher & Garner first hearing of a storm in the Gulf to making the difficult decision to redirect their practice–protecting the interests of their families and the City of New Orleans. Click here to read the article in its entirety.
