Tampa’s Top Rated Lawyers for Personal Injury Law
Tampa attorneys who exhibit the highest levels of ethical standards and professional excellence are named to this prestigious list of Top Rated Lawyers. Honorees are nominated by their peers and by judges within Florida. Notice of this honor is published in The Tampa Tribune, The Wall Street Journal and The National Law Journal.
Super Lawyers of Florida
Only 5% of Florida attorneys are chosen each year for this distinctive honor. Florida’s SuperLawyers are attorneys who undergo a statewide nomination process, independent research on each candidate and then recognition by other attorneys and judges for the excellence of their legal skill. The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel.
Lead Counsel Rating in Personal Injury Law
The Lead Counsel Rating was established in 1997 as a quality assurance tool consumers can use to quickly and easily evaluate an attorney’s expertise and credibility. By being awarded this rating, a consumer is assured that the attorney has met strict qualification standards that include professional experience, peer recommendations and a spotless disciplinary record.
Furthermore, an annual review is conducted in order to confirm an attorney’s eligibility for the Rating. Should the attorney no longer meet eligibility standards, the Rating is immediately revoked. And finally, attorneys may earn the right to use the Lead Counsel Rating free of charge. This confirms both Rating objectivity and credibility.
