We pride ourselves in being the firm other lawyers turn to when the stakes are high, the litigation is complex, the financial constraints are great or the required expertise is vital to the outcome.
Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) December 17, 2008
Five Cleveland lawyers concentrating their practice on personal injury and medical malpractice have received singular recognition for their work on behalf of aggrieved consumers and corporations. Peter Weinberger, Dennis Lansdowne, Peter J. Brodhead and William Hawal of Spangenberg, Shibley & Liber LLP have been named among 'The Best Lawyers in America' by legal publisher Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C. John D. 'Jack' Liber was also chosen for his unique skill in the field of alternative dispute resolution.
"We are honored to be chosen as leaders in the field of medical malpractice and personal injury litigation," acknowledged the firm's managing partner, Peter H. Weinberger. "We pride ourselves in being the firm other lawyers turn to when the stakes are high, the litigation is complex, the financial constraints are great or the required expertise is vital to the outcome."
Weinberger pointed to the firm's long history of quality representation at trial. "For more than 60 years, we have enjoyed a reputation as superior litigators," he explained. "We are not only consistently on top of the latest technical rule changes and the most effective litigation tactics, we stay abreast of all developments in medical malpractice and personal injury law -- so the courts and our opponents understand we will arrive on the day of trial well armed."
The Best Lawyers in America® has been called the most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. For more than 25 years, it has assisted lawyers and clients looking for legal counsel in unfamiliar specialties and in foreign jurisdictions. The 2009 edition is based on over 2.5 million confidential evaluations by leading attorneys throughout the country who were given the opportunity to cast votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their respective practice areas.
Cleveland medical malpractice lawyers Peter Weinberger, Dennis Lansdowne and William Hawal, chosen for their demonstrated expertise in claims arising from complex medical injuries, are now available for comment on physician and hospital errors, defective drugs, and faulty medical devices.
Cleveland personal injury lawyers Peter J. Brodhead, Dennis Landsdowne and Peter Weinberger can speak to the growth in national product liability litigation, particularly suits against the manufacturers of health care products.
