Andrew F. Palmieri, an Old Town attorney, has been named a D.C. “Super Lawyer” for 2007. Palmieri is a partner with the Old Town firm of Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP, where he practices mostly real estate law, and is an active civic leader in the city.
“Being named a D.C. Super Lawyer is a highly prized award in the legal profession, as it honors only the most outstanding practitioners in the United States,” said John Moore, a spokesman for the firm. Winners are selected through an extensive process of balloting, blue ribbon panel review and independent research. Only five percent of Washington-area attorneys were chosen for the recognition.
Palmieri is an enthusastic civic leader in Alexandria. He serves on the board of the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce, and is the immediate past chair of the Alexandria Waterfront Commmittee, established by City Council to study issues relating to the commercial uses along Alexandria’s waterfront. An animal lover, Palmieri serves as pro bono legal counsel to the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.
Palmieri practices in complex commercial, corporate and real estate transactions, including the development and acquisition of multi-family residential and commercial real estate projects. Palmieri has lectured nationally in areas pertaining to commercial and residential common interest projects, and continues to advise national developers on structuring and operating planned unit developments.
A graduate of St. John’s University and Catholic University’s School of Law, Palmieri also serves on the board of the American University of Rome.
Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP has offices in Alexandria and Washington, D.C., as well as four cities in Ohio. With 400 attorneys, Vorys is one of the largest law firms in the United States.
