NoonanLance Founding Partners David Noonan, James Lance and Ethan Boyer Named to 2017 Best Lawyers in America / David Noonan Receives Exceptional Honor as “Lawyer of the Year” in Legal Malpractice Law
Noonan Lance Boyer & Banach LLP’s (NoonanLance) is proud to announce that one of its founding partners, David J. Noonan, has been chosen “Lawyer of the Year” for Legal Malpractice Law – Defendants, by 2017 Best Lawyers in America.®
James R. Lance and Ethan T. Boyer both received the 2017 Best Lawyers in America® distinction for Commercial Litigation.
David J. Noonan is a recognized leader in the field of legal malpractice defense, having successfully represented numerous local and national law firms in trial and arbitration. Noonan was also named to the 2017 Best Lawyers list for his work in Bet-the-Company Litigation and, as he has been since 1995, for Commercial Litigation. Over the past four decades, he’s amassed an impressive career – representing high profile clients, receiving numerous recognitions from distinguished organizations and serving in leadership positions in San Diego’s major legal organizations.
Before becoming one of the founding partners of NoonanLance, he was a founding partner at the award-winning law firm of Kirby Noonan Lance & Hoge, where he managed a diverse client roster that included Am Law 100 law firms, and Fortune 500 companies, as well as professional athletes and a former Playmate of the Year.
James R. Lance, founding partner of NoonanLance, was awarded the 2017 Best Lawyers designation for Commercial Litigation – a recognition he’s received continuously since 2013. Lance is a highly experienced trial attorney who has tried cases in federal and state court for both plaintiffs and defendants – having obtained several verdicts, judgments and settlements in excess of $1 million each for his clients.
The focus of Lance’s practice is complex commercial litigation, with an emphasis in real estate disputes, and he continues to represent individuals asserting serious personal injury and wrongful death claims. A testament to his success, in 2013, Lance accepted admission in the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), an organization which requires an attorney to try the equivalent of 20 jury trials to verdict before they can be considered for membership.
NoonanLance’s managing partner, Ethan T. Boyer, was also recognized on the 2017 Best Lawyers list for his work in Commercial Litigation, an honor he first received in 2015. Boyer has dedicated his practice to resolving complex business and commercial disputes, including intellectual property matters, real estate and product liability cases. Throughout his career, he’s successfully handled all aspects of commercial and business litigation, in trials, arbitrations and appeals.
In addition to being listed in Best Lawyers for Commercial Litigation since 2015, Boyer has received an AV Peer Review rating from the Martindale Hubbell International Law Directory, indicating he has reached the pinnacle of professional excellence by demonstrating the highest level of ethical standards and professional ability.
