Kent Plotner was named the 2023 Best Lawyers® "Lawyer of the Year" for Mass Tort Litigation / Class Actions – Defendants in the St. Louis area. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the "Lawyer of the Year," making this accolade particularly significant. These lawyers are selected based on impressive voting averages received during the peer review assessments. This designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, professionalism and integrity.

In addition to the "Lawyer of the Year" award, Kent Plotner and six other Heyl Royster attorneys were selected for the 2023 edition of The Best Lawyers in America® and another two as Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in America™.
