John Fairbrook is a BEST LAWYER!


Less than one percent of the attorneys in the United States are selected as a member of The Best Lawyers in America®. Trainor Fairbrook is pleased to announce that, based upon the votes of his peers, John Fairbrook has just been named as one of The Best Lawyers in America®. John was selected in the practice area of Litigation Law. He joins our other Best Lawyers, Chuck Trainor and Nancy Hotchkiss, who have been repeatedly honored as Best Lawyers in the fields of Real Estate Law and Bankruptcy Law, respectively.

As Chair of Trainor Fairbrook’s Litigation Group, John’s practice focuses on litigating commercial real estate, real estate development, leasing, partnership and business disputes. He is a veteran trial lawyer who has tried dozens of jury and bench trials to successful conclusions for over 30 years. His clients include a broad range of real estate related companies and individuals, including some of the most prominent developers in Northern California.

John has been rated as a “preeminent” lawyer by the Martindale-Hubbell Legal Directory each year for the past 15 years. He also has been repeatedly selected as a Northern California Super Lawyer. His fellow trial lawyers have elected him as an honored member of the Anthony M. Kennedy American Inn of Court, and into the American Board of Trial Advocates.

For over 25 years, The Best Lawyers in America® has been regarded by both the legal profession and the public as a definitive guide to legal excellence. The selection process is based strictly on a peer-reviewed survey in which leading attorneys cast approximately 4.3 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. The results are published annually and this year included attorneys in 128 practice areas, covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

We congratulate John upon his receipt of this tremendous recognition. It is one of the great honors of any lawyer’s career to be recognized as one of The Best Lawyers in America®.
