MELBOURNE, Fla., Dec. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Central Florida personal injury lawyers at Nance Cacciatore have been ranked at the top of the country's leading law firms in the 2011-12 Best Law Firms analysis recently released by the U.S. News and Best Lawyers media groups.
The analysis—which covered nearly 9,000 law firms in 119 practice areas—placed Nance Cacciatore in the elite Tier 1 group for Personal Injury Litigation—Plaintiffs in Central Florida.
Rankings were based on surveys completed by clients, attorneys and peer review from leading lawyers in their field across the nation.
The surveys asked clients to rate the law firms they considered best in their practice area focusing on expertise, responsiveness, understanding of client needs and most importantly, whether they would refer another client to the firm. Responses were then combined with more than 3.9 million evaluations of individual attorneys from the most recent Best Lawyers survey of leading lawyers. To be eligible for ranking, a firm must have at least one lawyer who is included in Best Lawyers as part of the annual peer review assessment. Achieving a high ranking is a special honor, indicating an unusual combination of excellence and depth of expertise.
"We are extremely honored to be included in the "Best Law Firms" rankings," said wrongful death lawyer Jack Hamilton. "We fight vigorously for all of our clients, and it's nice to have our law firm recognized for all of our hard work over the 50 years since this firm was established."
For nearly four decades, added Hamilton "our attorneys have dedicated their legal practice to helping injured people and the families of those killed because of the negligence of others. The law and the nature of accidents and injuries have changed over the years, but what has not changed is our commitment to fighting for our clients. This ranking is acknowledgment of our dedication."
"There is such an abundance of legal talent in the United States, and that talent is spread among so many firms, that it is truly an outstanding achievement to be recognized as the leading firm in any single practice area," says Steven Naifeh, president of Best Lawyers, which recently published the 2012 edition of The Best Lawyers in America.
