Lommen Abdo Ranked in Tier 1 by U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers® Release 2011-2012 “Best Law Firms”
U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers® released the 2011-2012 “Best Law Firms” rankings, marking the second edition of this highly-anticipated annual analysis. The national first-tier rankings were featured in U.S.News & World Report’s Money issue.
Lommen Abdo’s Appellate, Legal Malpractice and Personal Injury Practices were included in the Tier 1 Rankings, the top level rankings. Also highly ranked were Lommen Abdo’s practices in Commercial Litigation, Corporate Law, Construction Litigation and Railroad Law. The rankings in their entirety are posted online at http://bestlawfirms.usnews.com.
These rankings, which are presented in tiers, showcase 9,633 different law firms ranked nationally in one or more of 75 major legal practice areas and in metropolitan or state rankings in one or more of 119 major legal practice areas.
Achieving a high ranking is a special distinction that signals a unique combination of excellence and breadth of expertise. The mission of “Best Law Firms” from the start has been to help guide referring lawyers and clients – from the country’s largest companies needing corporate legal advice to individuals needing to get a divorce or write a will – issues that have a bet-the-company implication (in the case of a corporation) or a potentially life-changing result (in the case of an individual).
"U.S News has more than two decades of experience in providing the public with the most accurate and in-depth rankings of a wide range of institutions, including our Best Law Schools rankings," says Tim Smart, Executive Editor of U.S. News & World Report. "Law firms are an integral part of our rankings and a natural accompaniment to the law schools rankings."
“Best Lawyers was very pleased with the reaction from the legal profession and from legal clients to the first edition of the “Best Law Firms” rankings,” says Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers. “By combining hard data with peer reviews, and client assessments, we continue to believe that we are providing clients with the most thorough, accurate, and helpful rankings of law firms ever developed.”
