Today U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers announced that Pritzker Hageman, P.A., a national personal injury law firm, is included in the 2017 “Best Law Firms” list in recognition of the firm’s professional excellence and persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. According to U.S. News, “Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.”
“U.S. News is the global authority in rankings,” says Tim Smart, executive editor of U.S. News & World Report. “Evaluating law firms is a natural extension of what we do best.”
The 2017 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in
The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the U.S.
The recognition is based, in part, on law firm reviews. “Over 10,000 attorneys provided more than 800,000 law firm assessments,” according to U.S. News.
“This year we reviewed 13,803 law firms across the United States and across 122 practice areas, for a total of 2,005 firms receiving a national law firm ranking, said Steven Naifeh, CEO and co-founder of Best Lawyers. “We are proud that the legal profession has come to view our law firm rankings each year with such deep and widespread respect.”
