DURHAM, N.C., Nov. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin continued its run of excellence by being named to the 2022 edition of the "U.S. News – Best Lawyers" 'Best Law Firms' annual national ranking list for the seventh consecutive year.*
This year, the firm again ranked in Tier 1 (the highest ranking) in the Raleigh metropolitan area for Workers' Compensation Law – Claimants and Workers' Compensation Law – Employers, the latter of which moved up from last year's still-impressive Tier 2 ranking. In addition, the firm repeated its strong showing from 2021 and ranked for Litigation – Insurance (Tier 3), Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs (Tier 3), and Product Liability Litigation – Plaintiffs (Tier 3).
Each year, U.S. News & World Report magazine and the Best Lawyers publication collect and analyze data that includes client and lawyer evaluations, peer reviews from respected attorneys, and additional information provided by the law firms as part of the formal submission process.

This designation signals a "combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal experience."
