The 2020 edition of the “U.S. News – Best Lawyers®” ‘Best Law Firms’ list again recognized the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin — the fifth consecutive year that the firm has been included in the annual ranking.
This year, the firm was ranked in Tier 1 (the highest ranking) in the Raleigh metropolitan area for Workers’ Compensation Law – Claimants. In addition, the firm ranked in the areas of Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs (Tier 2), and for Product Liability Litigation – Plaintiffs (Tier 3).*
Data is collected and analyzed every year by “U.S. News & World Report” magazine and “Best Lawyers” publication, “based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.”
According to a press release from “U.S. News – Best Lawyers®,” firms that are included in the list “are recognized for professional excellence with consistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.”
At least one lawyer listed in the peer-selected “Best Lawyers in America” list for the same year is required in order for law firms to be eligible for the “Best Law Firms” recognition. For the 2020 “Best Lawyers in America” list, four Farrin attorneys were recognized by their peers for their excellence and dedication to their work: Senior Litigation Attorney and Shareholder Hoyt Tessener, NC Board Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialist and Shareholder Barry Jennings, Litigation Attorney Gary Jackson, and NC Board Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialist Matthew Healey.
James S. Farrin, Founder and President of the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, said, “We work hard to try to consistently deliver excellent results for our clients, so to be recognized in this way year after year is very rewarding.”
