Hailed as one of the nation’s most respected legal rating publications, “Best Law Firms” recognizes legal practices held in high regard for their quality representation, record of success, and expertise.
Each year, U.S. News – Best Lawyers reviews feedback from thousands of leading lawyers who complete surveys about local law firms and whether they possess the characteristics to be considered among the “best” in their field.
Using these surveys, Best Lawyers scores and compares firms in the same region and practice area to assign one of three rankings. Firms ranked in the Tier 1 category are those which were scored the highest by their peers based on the firm’s professional references, expertise, client testimonials, cost-effectiveness, and whether surveyed lawyers would refer their own cases or clients to a firm.
This year, as in years past, Levinson Axelrod earned Best Lawyers‘ highest New Jersey Metropolitan Tier 1 ranking in two practice areas:
- Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs
- Workers’ Compensation Law – Claimants
