Board president

ROCKPORT — Stephen P. Cox of Bowdoinham, engineer at Aqua Maine, has been elected by the board of directors of the Maine Water Utilities Association to serve as president of the association this year.

Cox has been an association board member since 2008 and served as first vice president in 2010. He is a former member of the association’s program committee and is an active member of the New England Water Works Association and the American Water Works Association.

Lawyer honored

ROCKPORT — Rockport lawyer Don Briggs has been selected by his peers for inclusion in the 2011 edition of The Best Lawyers in America in the specialty of Personal Injury Litigation.  For more than a quarter of a century, Best Lawyers has been regarded — by both the profession and the public — as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States.

Selection to Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive and rigorous peer review survey comprising more than 3.1 million confidential evaluations by the top attorneys in the country. Because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be included, being listed in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Their annual, advertisement-free publication has been described by the The American Lawyer as “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer review publication in the legal profession. For a quarter-century, it has helped lawyers and clients find legal counsel in unfamiliar jurisdiction or unfamiliar practice areas. Best Lawyers lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media and the public as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.

Briggs has handled thousands of personal injury cases in his career. He specializes in helping Maine victims of car accidents, medical malpractice and other personal injury negligence cases. He is a board-certified Civil Trial Advocate, a past president of the Maine Trial Lawyers Association and a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. He is the past editor of Maine Verdicts and has been recognized as a Fellow by the National College of Trial Advocacy. He is a member of the AAJ Professional Negligence Section and the AAJ Medical Negligence Information Exchange Group. Briggs is currently president of the Knox County Bar Association.
