BOSTON/PROVIDENCE (Nov. 5, 2015) – Barton Gilman LLP was recently selected to the 2016 Best Law Firms rankings for personal injury defense. This marks the third consecutive year the firm has been included in the prestigious directory of best firms in the country.
Firms included in the rankings, compiled by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers, are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. The firm achieved a Tier Two ranking in personal injury defense (Boston metropolitan area).
Achieving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and practice areas for their abilities, professionalism and integrity.
The 2016 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. Over 21,000 attorneys provided almost 700,000 law firm assessments, and almost 8,000 clients provided more than 47,000 evaluations.
To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top four percent of practicing attorneys in the U.S. Pamela Slater Gilman and Francis A. Connor, III have been chosen for the Best Lawyers directory for five consecutive years (2012-16).
