Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) May 21, 2016
Distinguished Eastern Pennsylvania injury law firm Wapner, Newman, Wigrizer, Brecher & Miller, P.C., appreciates the recognition from Super Lawyers of its attorneys who exhibit excellence in practice. With just 5 percent of all lawyers in each state included on the annual Super Lawyers list and an even more competitive 2.5 percent on the annual Super Lawyers: Rising Star list, the firm acknowledges the value of having multiple attorneys selected – some more than once in their careers.
“Being chosen to these lists is validation that we are doing something right,” observed Managing Partner Marc Brecher. “It means our colleagues think highly of us and the way we champion plaintiffs’ rights. The peer-driven nominations, followed by independent research and peer evaluations of the Super Lawyers process, make the selections a significant achievement. We have a lot of talent in our firm and are pleased to have outside acknowledgment of that fact.”
