Oct. 17, 2019 - University of Houston Law Center alumnas Iona N. Kaiser ‘01, Carey C. Jordan ‘97 and Monica F. Oathout ‘87 have been named on the 2020 Best Lawyers in America list by Best Lawyers, an organization committed to highlighting extraordinary private practice attorneys via peer review processes.

The 2020 publication of Best Lawyers in America was created via the analysis of more than 8 million votes, resulting in more than 62,000 attorneys being selected.

Once nominated, attorneys are grouped by geographic place and practice area, then judged on professional expertise by their peers. Recipients of exceptional peer reviews are verified to be in good standing and currently practicing before being officially deemed top lawyers.

“I am very excited to be included as a Best Lawyer with outstanding colleagues and alumni from the Law Center,” said Jordan, a patent law attorney.

Kaiser, Jordan and Oathout work for Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP, an interdisciplinary law firm based in Ohio with seven ancillary offices nationwide, including a Houston location.

“The Law Center gave me an amazing foundation for the study of law,” said Oathout, an employment lawyer involved with management at Vorys said. “I’m thrilled to share the Best Lawyer recognition with my fellow UH alumni and colleagues.”
