Galfand Berger is proud to announce that “Best Lawyers” has named Senior Partner, Rick Jurewicz, as one of 2018’s “Best Lawyers in Pennsylvania.” This honor comes from one of the oldest peer review publications in the legal profession, which utilizes the opinions of leading attorneys in different regions in order to compile its comprehensive list.
Rick has been litigating cases at Galfand Berger for nearly 34 years. He handles complex construction accident, hand and arm injury, product liability, and automobile accident cases. Rick is responsible for some of Galfand Berger’s largest recoveries.
So, it comes as no surprise that Rick would receive this honor.
One of the most notable things about the “Best Lawyers of 2018” list is that it relies entirely on peer reviews when deciding which attorneys are the best across the country. This means that the organization isn’t naming recipients based on payments from membership fees, but instead from genuine feedback coming from other attorneys in the same practice areas.
“Best Lawyers” has used the same methodology to decide which lawyers are the best in their field for the last 30 years. It’s a complex process, which first requires that an attorney be nominated for the award. Attorneys are not able to nominate themselves. After someone is nominated, the organization collects and analyzes feedback from the attorney’s professional peers. Once an attorney has made it through these stages of the intensive process, his or her eligibility is determined and the results officially released. In order to be eligible, an attorney must be in good standing with his or her local bar associations.
Only attorneys who receive the highest overall peer feedback are awarded with the honor of being named as one of the “Best Lawyers” in their state.
With offices located in Philadelphia, Bethlehem, Lancaster and Reading, Galfand Berger serves clients throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. To schedule a consultation with Rick, call us at 800-222-8792 or complete our online contact form.
