Scranton, PA (PRWEB) September 19, 2010
Munley, Munley & Cartwright, P.C., a firm with more than 40 years of experience in personal injury law, has won a place on a list of the nation's best law firms, published jointly for the first time by Best Lawyers and U.S. News & World Report.
"To make this highly competitive list is an honor and a reward for years of intensive and quality work by our lawyers on behalf of our clients," said Robert W. Munley, the founding partner of the firm.
The inaugural rankings released this week are presented in tiers both nationally and by metropolitan area or by state. They showcase 8,782 different law firms ranked in one or more of 81 major practice areas.
The rankings are based on peer surveys combined with more than 3.1 million evaluations of individual lawyers in the most recent Best Lawyers survey of leading lawyers.
“U.S. News is the world’s leading publisher of institutional rankings based on both objective data and peer evaluations,” says Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers. “We are combining this expertise with Best Lawyers’ experience of providing rankings of individual lawyers."
Naifeh said the collaboration by the two publishers has produced "the most thorough, accurate, and helpful rankings of law firms ever developed.”
Munley said his Pennsylvania law firm was pleased to meet the high standards of the joint review.
"Trial lawyers live for verdicts and we are very happy with this one," he said.
Generating the rankings involved an exhaustive survey. In the end, 9,514 clients – including every Fortune 100 company – provided 194,370 firm practice-area evaluations; 6,190 clients provided 11,181 comments about law firm practice areas and individual lawyers; and 8,842 lawyers provided 594,012 firm practice-area evaluations.
