It might be best for the rest of y’all – and by y’all, we mean attorneys – to stop hoping you might get this accolade. Witten has won this spot for several years in a row, and here’s why: She’s as focused as Arnie Becker and as cunning as Ben Matlock. A transactional law specialist, Witten tackles the most complex of complex issues, from securities and mergers and acquisitions to trademarks and copyrights. And in wine-heavy Monterey County, she’s also in business as a wine specialist. She launched the popular winelawdecanted.com, considered to be the top wine law blog in the country. She’s a marathoner, a mom of twins and hella active in the community too. In short, Jeanette Witten is the total package.
