Pope McGlamry, is honored to announce that it has been ranked a “First – Tier” law firm in the “Best Law Firms” initiative by U.S. News & World Report, Best Lawyers® (“U.S. News” and Woodward/White d/b/a as “Best Lawyers”) in both Personal Injury Litigation and Commercial Litigation. A First –Tier ranking in the “Best Law Firms” 2011 – 2012 edition of Best Lawyers® is considered a top honor as Best Lawyers® is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.
Best Lawyers® compiles lists of outstanding law firms by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. A law firm is not eligible for ranking unless they have at least one attorney that is included in Best Lawyers as part of its annual peer review assessment, “Best Lawyers in America.” Pope McGlamry boasts a total of nine lawyers that were listed in the 2012 edition of “Best Lawyers in America.” Lawyers voted on expertise, responsiveness, integrity, cost-effectiveness, whether they would refer a matter to a firm, and whether they consider a firm a worthy competitor. The rankings incorporate 3.9 million evaluations of 41,284 individual leading lawyers collected by Best Lawyers® in its most recent annual survey.
Because lawyers and law firms 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 true honor, conferred on a lawyer or law firm by his or her peers. For a quarter century, Best Lawyers® has helped lawyers and clients find legal counsel in unfamiliar jurisdictions or unfamiliar practice areas, and it has earned the respect of the legal profession, the media, and the public, as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.
Law firms ranked by 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. Both the Atlanta office of Pope McGlamry and the Pope McGlamry Columbus office were conferred a First – Tier Ranking. The Atlanta office was ranked as First – Tier in Personal Injury Litigation for Plaintiffs. The Columbus office was also ranked as First – Tier in Personal Injury Litigation for Plaintiffs as well as for Commercial Litigation and Litigation for Eminent Domain and Condemnation.
