Buckingham Named to the U.S. News & World Report & Best Lawyers® 2014 “Best Law Firms” List
(Akron, OH, November 26, 2013) — Buckingham, Doolittle & Burroughs, LLC is proud to announce that U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers ranked the firm both locally and nationally on their “Best Law Firms” 2014 list for its strengths in multiple practice areas.
John Slagter, Buckingham’s managing partner, said, “We are very honored that our Real Estate litigation practice earned a national ranking by the U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers and we feel that this award exemplifies one of our many strengths. We are also very pleased to have been ranked locally in 32 additional practice areas.”
Firms included in the 2014 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.
The 2014 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America©, which recognizes the top four percent of practicing attorneys in the U.S.
Ranked firms, presented in tiers, are listed on a national and/or metropolitan scale. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity.
