Washington D.C. – September 15, 2010 – U.S. News and World Report and Best Lawyers have released the 2010 Best Law Firms rankings, marking the inaugural publication of this highly-anticipated annual analysis. Janet, Jenner & Suggs LLP was named to the Metropolitan First Tier in four practice areas: Medical Malpractice, Product Defects, Personal Injury, and Mass Tort/Class Action.
The first-tier rankings were featured in the October print issue of U.S.News & World Report. Along with being named Best Law Firm, JJS attorneys Howard Janet, Robert Jenner, Ken Suggs and Dov Aphel have been named Best Lawyers for the past five years.
“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. “This experience, coupled with our growing reputation as a leading career information resource, makes these law firm rankings a logical next step.”
These reputational survey responses were combined with more than 3.1 million evaluations of individual lawyers in these firms in the most recent Best Lawyers survey of leading lawyers. Hard numbers were also used to develop the practice area rankings—data about numbers of lawyers and their previous experience, numbers of clients within different billing ranges, numbers of transactions and litigation matters at different dollar levels; pro-bono commitment, diversity, and other objective data.
Achieving a high ranking is a special distinction that signals a unique combination of excellence and breadth of expertise.
