Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
Anapol Schwartz is among the nation’s best mass tort law firms according to the 2013 “Best Law Firms” rankings by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers®. The firm was recognized with a Tier 1 ranking in “Mass Tort Litigation /Class Actions – Plaintiffs” category both nationally and in Philadelphia. The honor of this award is made all the more special because it originates from the joint effort of a nationally recognized news source and the leading survey of lawyers worldwide.
The rankings feature law firms that are given consistently high performance ratings by clients and peers. Among the most important criteria to earn the award is a firm’s unique combination of legal excellence and breadth of knowledge. To achieve this national and regional distinction, a law firm and its legal team must be prominent leaders in their field of personal injury practice.
“Anapol Schwartz is delighted to accept this award for the second year running,” said Shareholder/ Director Sol H. Weiss. “It’s a real tribute to the hard work and dedication that each of our 20 attorneys devote to the best possible outcome for every client. Our work changes people’s lives for the better, and in the end, that’s the best reward of all.”
Last year’s edition of “Best Law Firms” also recognized Anapol Schwartz as a Tier 1 firm. Attorneys Sol H. Weiss and Lawrence R. Cohan were selected as Best Lawyers® for class action suits in Philadelphia.
The mission of “Best Law Firms” is to guide referring lawyers and clients to make reliable and accurate choices among the country’s many law firms. Steven Naifeh, president of Best Lawyers®, summarizes the award’s special value. “Because we combine hard data with peer reviews and client assessments, more and more clients inform us that ours are the most thorough, accurate, and helpful rankings of law firms ever developed.”
