GJEL Recognized as Top Law Firm By Best Lawyers & US News & World Report
Online PR News – 19-October-2021 – San Jose – Best Lawyers is a peer review publication that recognizes attorneys and law firms that are leaders in the industry. The peer review methodology is designed to capture professional attorneys’ opinions about their colleagues in their respective practice and geographical areas.
The process to win the Best Law Firms award requires the winner to be nominated by individuals not employed by the firm. The nominations are peer reviewed by currently recognized lawyers who assess the impact of the reported firm’s work. Then the feedback is analyzed and the firm’s credentials and its good standing with the local bar association is confirmed. Finally, Best Lawyers releases the winners of the year’s awards.
The Best Law Firm award is practice area and location-specific. The Best Lawyers review method considers hundreds of factors when selecting the year’s winner. These factors include:
• Comments from attorneys previously recognized by Best Lawyers;
• The firm’s impact in its specific practice area;
• Review of the firm’s previous Best Lawyers awards, including Lawyer of the Year; and
• Analysis of the firm’s expertise in its practice area.
GJEL received recognition for its California-based personal injury litigation - plaintiffs practice area, as well as its mass tort litigation/class actions - plaintiffs practice area. In these practice areas, GJEL represents victims of negligence and other tortious conduct; attorneys fight for clients to receive fair compensation. GJEL’s other practice areas include torts like hit-and-run car accidents and wrongful death claims.
GJEL is proud to receive this recognition from our colleagues from a national reviewer like Best Lawyers.
