SAN DIEGO, Nov. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For the past seven years, U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers has put together a list of the Best Law Firms in the country. In order for a firm to be eligible for this honor, at least one attorney must be listed in The Best Lawyers in America, a list that The McClellan Law Firm's founding attorney Craig McClellan has been included in every year since 1993. Best Lawyers reviewed nearly 14,000 law firms before selecting the final 2,005 for the 2017 rankings. From there, the firms were further broken down into three tiers. The McClellan Law Firm has been selected to the highest tier, an honor it has received since 2012.
For over 25 years, the McClellan Law Firm has secured more than 110 settlements and verdicts exceeding $1 million each, and have gone toe-to-toe with some of the largest companies in the world. In addition to the firm's consistent inclusion to the list of the Best Law Firms, Craig McClellan has been named the "Lawyer of the Year" in San Diego by Best Lawyers in 2012 for Product Liability Litigation for Plaintiffs, and again in 2014 for both Product Liability Litigation and Personal Injury Litigation for Plaintiffs. As the only attorney in San Diego to be invited to join the Inner Circle of Advocates, an invitation-only group of the 100 best plaintiff lawyers in the United States, he is frequently called upon by the media to provide commentary on some of the biggest events of the day.
