Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal industry, has recognized seven Weitz & Luxenberg attorneys in its annual Best Lawyers in America list for 2017.
“Our attorneys have consistently demonstrated an unwavering commitment to achieving the best results for our clients, and this recognition shows that their hard work has not gone unnoticed by their peers,” said Perry Weitz, co-founding member of Weitz & Luxenberg.
Recognition Based on Rigorous Peer-Review
In the category of Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions for Plaintiffs, Best Lawyers recognized firm co-founders Perry Weitz and Arthur Luxenberg as well as Charles M. Ferguson, Robert J. Gordon, Paul J. Pennock and Michael P. Roberts in New York, NY, and Jerry Kristal in Cherry Hill, NJ. Best Lawyers also recognized Luxenberg for his work in Personal Injury Litigation for Plaintiffs in New York, NY.
Attorneys are chosen to be on the annual Best Lawyers list after a rigorous peer-review evaluation. According to Best Lawyers, the methodology is “designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area.”
Mr. Weitz added, “While seven of our attorneys have been recognized this year by Best Lawyers, their success – and the overall success of our firm – would not be possible without the dedication put forth by our entire staff.”
Weitz & Luxenberg Has Received Multiple Recent Honors
Each Weitz & Luxenberg attorney recognized in the Best Lawyers in America 2017 list has received the distinction multiple times.
Weitz & Luxenberg was also recently named national law firm of the year in Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions for Plaintiffs by U.S. News – Best Lawyers. Additionally, 17 attorneys in the firm were recognized by Super Lawyers magazine in September as exceptional attorneys in the New York Metro area. Two of these attorneys have now received the honor from Super Lawyers 10 times.
