BOSTON/PROVIDENCE (Nov. 3, 2014) – Barton Gilman LLP was recently selected to the 2015 Best Law Firms rankings in two practice areas – medical malpractice defense and personal injury defense. This marks the second consecutive year the firm has been included in the prestigious directory of best firms in the country.
Firms included in the rankings, compiled by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers, are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. The firm achieved a Tier Two ranking in medical malpractice defense (Boston metropolitan area), and a Tier Three ranking in personal injury defense (Boston metropolitan area).
Achieving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and practice areas for their abilities, professionalism and integrity.
The 2015 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. Over 17,000 attorneys provided almost 600,000 law firm assessments, and almost 7,500 clients provided more than 40,000 evaluations.
To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top four percent of practicing attorneys in the U.S. Pamela S. Gilman and Francis A. Connor III have been chosen for the Best Lawyers directory for four consecutive years (2012–2015), and Andrew R. Weiner has been selected for three consecutive years (2013–2015).
“We are pleased to receive this recognition by our peers,” said Gilman, who focuses her practice primarily on defending medical professionals in malpractice cases. “Our goal in every case we handle is to help clients efficiently address their legal and business concerns. Being selected to Best Law Firms reflects the hard work and professionalism of our entire team of attorneys and staff, and the service we provide to clients.”
