Beasley Allen Law Firm has been selected to the inaugural publication of Best Law Firms in the U.S., as selected by U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers
MONTGOMERY, ALA. (September 16, 2010) – Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C. has been selected for inclusion in the 2010 Best Law Firms ranking. This is the inaugural publication of this highly anticipated national analysis, which will be compiled annually by U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers. Beasley Allen was given a Metropolitan First-Tier ranking in the areas of Mass Tort Litigation / Class Actions – Plaintiffs, and Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs. Beasley Allen also received a Metropolitan Tier 2 ranking for Health Care Law in Montgomery. Rankings will be featured in the October print issue of U.S. News & World Report.
“I’m especially pleased by these rankings, because they recognize the hard work done by everyone in this firm,” said Beasley Allen Founding Shareholder Jere L. Beasley. “All of our lawyers and support staff are dedicated to working hard for the folks we serve, to help them secure justice. Our motto is ‘helping those who need it most,’ and the lawyers and staff here are truly dedicated to that ideal. I’m very glad to see their efforts recognized.”
The rankings provide a comprehensive view of the U.S. legal profession that is unprecedented in both the range of firms represented and in the range of qualitative and quantitative data used to develop the rankings. Data was gathered through national surveys in which major clients and leading lawyers were asked to rate the law firms they consider best in their practice area. These reputational survey responses were combined with more than 3.1 million evaluations of individual lawyers in these firms in the most recent Best Lawyers survey of leading lawyers, among other data. Achieving a high ranking is a special distinction that signals a unique combination of excellence and breadth of expertise.
“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 based on peer reviews for almost three decades. By combining hard data with peer reviews, and client assessments, we believe that we are providing users with the most thorough, accurate, and helpful rankings of law firms ever developed.”
In August, 13 individual Beasley Allen attorneys were selected for inclusion in the 2011 edition of Best Lawyers. They are Jere L. Beasley, J. Greg Allen, Thomas J. Methvin, J. Cole Portis, W. Daniel “Dee” Miles III, Michael J. Crow, Andy D. Birchfield, Jr., Rhon E. Jones, Roman A. Shaul, P. Leigh O’Dell, Julia Anne Beasley, LaBarron N. Boone and R. Graham Esdale, Jr.
