Plaintiff lawyers are built for crisis. Their very job means they’re always with people who are grieving, who are recovering from shock or trauma, who are in dire need of an advocate. In these times—in the midst of a health crisis never before seen in our nation—it is clear that we all need advocates right now.
Lawdragon, one of the most elite publications in the legal industry, released their 2020 edition of the Lawdragon 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyer Guide today. The guide is designed to help plaintiffs in trouble find some of the leading litigators who handle cases involving pharmaceuticals, defective products, and other torts.
Regarding their selections, Lawdragon writes:
“Among them are lawyers who have won billions of dollars from pharmaceutical companies and other purveyors of dangerous products. Fearless counsel who take on the toughest sexual abuse cases. An attorney who is at this moment advising someone who mourns a brother lost to the pandemic, a mother fallen ill.”
Our firm is proud to announce that three of our attorneys—Kurt Arnold, Jason Itkin, and Cory Itkin—have been included on the list. They are among just 500 lawyers nationwide who were chosen through a rigorous selection process. The process evaluated attorneys by some of the highest standards in the industry.
Attorneys were chosen according to criteria like:
- Has this attorney made the world better by their advocacy?
- Have they shaped the practice of law for the better?
- Have they gotten results for their clients that have changed their lives?
- Do they exhibit wisdom and creativity in their practice of the law?
With a keen sense of how the legal industry works, Lawdragon researchers survey countless attorneys nationwide, asking for their opinion on the leading litigators in their practice area. The final list is whittled down to just 500 advocates, ensuring that every selection on the list is among the most elite legal practitioners in the nation.
Our team is honored to be included among so many distinguished litigators in our field. We’re also honored to be recognized as a leading resource for consumer plaintiffs—people whose trust has been betrayed by companies who should have (or did) know better. Even in these difficult circumstances, our firm continues to advocate for people who have been harmed by negligence, carelessness, or greed.
