Nine Pope McGlamry Lawyers Named Best Lawyers by their Peers

Pope McGlamry, is honored to announce that nine of its lawyers have been named Best Lawyers by their peers for inclusion as The Best Lawyers in America® 2012 (Copyright 2011 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.).  Inclusion in the 2012 edition of The Best Lawyers in America is considered a top honor as less than three percent of the nation’s lawyers are listed in the guide, which are chosen by their peers and organized by practice area. For the 2012 edition, top lawyers cast more than 2.8 million votes on the legal abilities of peer attorneys in the same and related specialties.

Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. For a quarter century, it has helped lawyers and clients find legal counsel in unfamiliar jurisdictions or unfamiliar practice areas.  Best Lawyers compiles lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. In the U.S., Best Lawyers publishes an annual referral guide, The Best Lawyers in America, which includes 41,149 attorneys in 126 practice areas, covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be included, a listing in Best Lawyers is widely regarded within the legal profession as a singular honor, conferred on a lawyer by his or her peers. For more than 25 years, Best Lawyers lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media, and the public, as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.

The lawyers listed in Best Lawyers have no say in deciding which practice areas they are included in. They are voted into practice areas entirely as a result of the votes they receive from their peers. The subspecialties listed after their names are based on information from a variety of sources. The nine Pope McGlamry, lawyers selected were named Best Lawyers in the areas of Commercial Litigation, Product Liability Litigation, Medical Malpractice Law, and Personal Injury Litigation.
