Our Houston personal injury firm is thrilled to announce that we've been given a Tier 1 "Best Law Firms" ranking by U.S. News and Best Lawyers® in the Houston metropolitan area for 2020. We've received a Tier 1 ranking in two practice areas: Admiralty & Maritime Law, and Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs.
Arnold & Itkin's top-tier rankings in both practice areas are an indication of our law firm's sterling reputation in the legal community nationwide. The work we do on behalf of clients has been recognized again and again for its excellence, both in terms of client outcomes and in sheer dollar size. Our firm is proud to be among the most distinguished law firms in a large legal community, but we're prouder still of what we've done on behalf of the injured and wronged in fifteen years of advocacy.

The Best Law Firms Methodology
If you want to know how effective a lawyer is, you ask their colleagues for their anonymous opinion. That's the philosophy behind the U.S. News andBest Lawyers® methodology. Using a method of peer-reviewed evaluations within individual geographic areas and fields of practice, U.S. News and Best Lawyers have been able to develop an annual list of attorneys who are known for their effectiveness, client service, integrity, and results.
From this list, both publications create the "Best Law Firms" list. Every firm that employs or includes a Best Lawyers honoree is eligible for "Best Law Firms" recognition. The law firm's clients are asked to rate the law firm's cost-effectiveness, understanding, and whether they would refer people to the firm. Combined with 7.4 million evaluations of 58,108 lawyers from the Best Lawyers survey, the U.S. News and Best Lawyers research team takes all the qualitative and quantitative data to assign each law firm a score.
Each law firm's score is then compared with all of the law firms in their metropolitan area and on a national scale. Law firms that score within a certain percentage of law firms in their metropolitan area and nationally are assigned a Tier Ranking: Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and so on. With the US divided into only 188 metropolitan areas, ranking in any geographic area is a tough contest.
Arnold & Itkin isproud to have earned top-tier recognition for our work on behalf of injured people everywhere. Speak with us today if you need an advocate after an accident.
