"We are grateful for this recognition of our national law firm from 'Best Law Firms,'" said John Simmons, chairman of Simmons Hanly Conroy. "This ranking is acknowledgement of all the hard work and commitment from our attorneys and staff who help people injured and harmed by dangerous drugs, exposure to asbestos and corporate wrongdoing."
Now in its seventh year, "Best Law Firms" is a collaboration between U.S. News & World Report and the prestigious "Best Lawyers" peer review guide. U.S. law firms are ranked nationally in 74 major legal practice areas and in 187 metro areas across 122 practice areas. Firms earn rankings in the "Best Law Firms" guide based on recommendations from leading lawyers and clients in their ranked practice areas, as well as review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the submission process. Firms are evaluated on attributes including expertise, professionalism and responsiveness. To be eligible for a ranking in a particular practice area and metro area, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is included in the annual "Best Lawyers" guide in the same practice area and metro area.
The 2017 "Best Law Firms" rankings are published on the U.S. News & World Report website at http://BestLawFirms.USNews.com.
