'To be included with the other 49 firms from across America is both humbling and inspiring,' firm founder John Morgan said.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) September 12, 2014
Morgan & Morgan is proud to announce that it has been included in The National Law Journal and Law.com’s first-ever list of America’s Elite Trial Lawyers, a compilation of law firms nationwide that have earned “big victories in complex cases” and devote a majority of their practice to working with plaintiffs in seeking justice.
“To be included with the other 49 firms from across America is both humbling and inspiring,” firm founder John Morgan said.
Though more than 100 law firms were initially considered, the final list features 50 national firms that have “scored at least one significant plaintiffs’ win” between January 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014. These firms, according to The National Law Journal, have compiled exceptional track records of settlements and verdicts over the past five years in high-stakes cases, lawsuits where a substantial amount of money was involved or the outcome of the suit could have possibly “affected litigation strategy or results” in similar lawsuits across the country.
Additionally, to be considered for the final list, a law firm must have devoted at least 50 percent of its litigation resources to plaintiffs’ work while earning half or more of its revenue from “plaintiffs’-side activities.” To Morgan, a man whose life’s work has been “For The People,” inclusion in The National Law Journal’s list is further proof that Morgan & Morgan’s mission is both justified and rewarding.
“We have spent out entire legal career fighting injustice and being the voice of the powerless,” Morgan said. “This honor makes all the years worthwhile.”
Other factors considered in creating the list include verdict amounts, complexity of cases and procedures, volume of cases handled, impact of litigation results on government policy, feedback from presiding judges, and firm size in relation to recovery amounts and impact. Indeed, Morgan knows that his firm’s success comes from its ever-growing team of attorneys who dedicate each day to protecting plaintiffs’ rights.
“For the lawyers and staff this award is the culmination of many long hours of work, preparation and trials,” Morgan said. “This honor was earned by the whole firm. It is very significant to us and greatly appreciated.”
