HOUSTON (Nov. 2, 2015) – National law firm Chamberlain Hrdlicka is pleased to announce that it again has been named a “Best Law Firm” by U.S. News – Best Lawyers for 2016, achieving national Tier 1 rankings in the practice areas of tax litigation and trusts and estates law, as well as national rankings for immigration law and tax law.
The firm’s four offices also achieved metropolitan rankings, demonstrating the prowess of the attorneys at each of the firm’s four offices, in Atlanta, Houston, Philadelphia and San Antonio.
“Excellence is a hallmark of the culture at our firm,” said Wayne A. Risoli, managing shareholder of Chamberlain Hrdlicka. “We are gratified when that work ethic is rewarded with recognitions such as this, which are based on feedback from our clients and colleagues.”
Best Law Firms rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.
The highest honor, a Tier 1 ranking, is based on a firm's overall evaluation, which is derived from a combination of its clients' impressive feedback, the regard that lawyers in other firms in the same practice area have for the firm, and information that the firm provided to Best Lawyers via a survey.
To be eligible for a Best Law Firm ranking, a firm must have at least one lawyer included in The Best Lawyers in America®. Attorneys are neither required nor allowed to pay a fee to be listed. From Chamberlain Hrdlicka’s four offices nationwide, 15 attorneys were named among Best Lawyers for 2016 and were recognized for their prowess in tax law, tax litigation and controversy, trusts and estates, employee benefits (ERISA) law, construction law, and immigration law.
