Setliff Law receives top honors as one of America’s “Best Law Firms”

(November 2014) RICHMOND, VA –Setliff Law, P.C., has been ranked as one of America’s best law firms for 2015 by U.S. News & World Report, one of the nation's leading ranking sources, and Best Lawyers, a leading surveyor of lawyers and law firms worldwide. Setliff Law received a Tier 1 metropolitan ranking (Richmond) in Litigation – Real Estate, Mass Tort Litigation/Class Action – Defendants, Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants, and Railroad Law. The firm also received a Tier 2 metropolitan ranking (Richmond) for Commercial Litigation, Eminent Domain and Condemnation Law, Insurance Law, and Transportation Law. Also in the Richmond rankings, the law firm ranked as a Tier 3 for Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs.

According to Best Lawyers, receiving the tier designations “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. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.”

Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey. Over 52,000 leading attorneys cast more than 5.5 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
