Scopelitis Named to 2018 Best Law Firms List
Scopelitis, Garvin, Light, Hanson & Feary has been named to U.S. News & World Report's “Best Law Firms” list for the fourth consecutive year. Firms included in the list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers.
The 2018 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 named to “The Best Lawyers in America” list, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the U.S. Over 13,000 attorneys provided more than 1,000,000 law firm assessments, and over 7,500 clients provided more than 65,000 evaluations. Scopelitis attorneys were named to the transportation law, workers’ compensation law, and commercial litigation lists.
“With almost 40 years of experience, we know industry leaders often think of us when they want to ensure that their business plan sets them up for future success,” said Scopelitis President and Managing Partner Greg Feary. “Our attorneys are dedicated to taking a personalized, responsive, concierge approach to helping our clients. We’re glad to have their hard work recognized.”
Ranked firms are listed on a national and/or metropolitan scale. Rankings such as Scopelitis’ tier 1 and tier 2 designations reflect 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 its abilities, its professionalism, and its integrity.
