Kazan Law Selected As Best Lawyers By Prestigious Peer Review Group
For our mesothelioma law practice this is turning out to be a week of accolades. I am proud to announce that Kazan, McClain, Satterley & Greenwood has been chosen as a top tier metropolitan law firm by the prestigious Best Lawyers organization. Best Lawyers is the oldest and most highly-respected peer review guide to the legal profession worldwide.
This newest honor for Kazan Law comes on the heels of finding out that we made the cut for the US Chamber of Commerce’s list of the 15 top asbestos litigation firms in the United States – with myself plus Joseph Satterley and Justin Bosl singled out for special mention.
“A listing in Best Lawyers is widely regarded by both clients and legal professionals as a significant honor, conferred on a lawyer by his or her peers,” Best Lawyers’ website states. “For more than three decades, Best Lawyers lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media, and the public, as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.”
The lists of outstanding attorneys are compiled by peer-review surveys. Tens of thousands of lawyers around the country are asked to confidentially evaluate their professional colleagues. Lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate in these surveys or be included in the lists. If the votes for an attorney are positive enough to be included in Best Lawyers, that attorney must maintain those votes in subsequent polls to remain on the list for each edition.
Kazan Law was chosen by Best Lawyers in the categories of mass tort litigation and class action suits for plaintiffs. These are cases when many plaintiffs, i.e. people who feel they have cause to believe they have been harmed and are bringing a lawsuit against those they believe caused the harm, group together to go up against one or several corporations. The corporations in these cases are the defendants who are defending themselves against charges of causing harm. At Kazan Law we focus exclusively on asbestos lawsuits. Our attorneys have been important in winning precedent-setting rulings by the California Appellate and Supreme Courts. Kazan Law is consulted by and gives advice to over a thousand potential clients each year.
