US News & World Report and publication partner Best Lawyers© have chosen law firm Tharrington Smith, LLP as Raleigh’s 2013 “First-Tier, Best Law Firm” for the following practice areas:
- Appellate Practice
- Criminal Defense: Non-White-Collar
- Criminal Defense: White-Collar – Governmental Investigations
- Criminal Defense: White-Collar – Litigation
- Education Law
- Family Law
- Litigation – Eminent Domain & Condemnation
A “Tier-1” ranking is determined through an objective analysis of a combination of client feedback, the views of contemporary lawyers in other firms in similar practice areas, as well as other firm-submitted survey information. These rankings are announced only three weeks after fourteen Tharrington Smith attorneys were chosen as Best Lawyers in their particular practice area.
“The selection of our firm as a Best Law Firm is exciting and highlights the professionalism and commitment of both the attorneys and staff across the firm. We were pleased to see that client evaluation is a significant part of the selection process.” said Tharrington Smith managing partner and family law attorney Fred Morelock. “Giving our best for each client is very important to us.”
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers© has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers© is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers© is considered a singular honor.
Established in 1964, Tharrington Smith, LLP, provides legal counsel and services in Family Law, Education Law, Criminal Defense, Civil Litigation, Election Law, Intellectual Property, and other focus areas.
