Durham, NC (PRWEB) August 19, 2016
James Scott Farrin attorneys Matthew Healey and Barry Jennings were selected by their peers to be among the 2017 “Best Lawyers in America”* in the field of workers’ compensation law. This is the fifth consecutive year Healey received this award, and the third consecutive year for Jennings.
These rankings recognize attorneys across the nation based on peer-review. During the review process, attorneys rank the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical and legal practice area.
Healey was also listed in the publication as Raleigh’s workers’ compensation “Lawyer of the Year”1 for 2017, a designation he had previously received in 2015. Additionally, “North Carolina Super Lawyers Magazine” has listed Healey as a “Super Lawyer”** since 2014, and “Rising Star”** from 2010 to 2013.
"I am doing what I love to do – fighting for the rights of hardworking North Carolinians whose lives have been turned upside down by a workplace injury. This fight is a team effort. I'm grateful to have such talented and dedicated coworkers and to work for a firm that puts its clients first," Healey said.
Jennings, in addition to the “Best Lawyers in America”* 2015, 2016, and 2017 designations, previously earned the designation of “Rising Star”** by “North Carolina Super Lawyers Magazine” for three consecutive years, 2011, 2012, and 2013.
“It really is a humbling experience to realize that my peers have nominated me for this award, Jennings said. “This journey to justice our firm is on … it’s my passion. And that of my team members too. All of us share in this award.”
