In brief: SchmidtKramer named one of top U.S. law firms
Harrisburg-based plaintiffs' firm SchmidtKramer has been named among the “Best Law Firms” in Pennsylvania for 2013 by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers.
The Dauphin County firm received top ranking for its practices in medical malpractice law, personal injury litigation and workers' compensation law.
"We are honored to be recognized as a leader in our profession," Scott Cooper, a partner at SchmidtKramer, said in a statement. "These rankings can assist clients in choosing a law firm that has the knowledge and experience to best represent them in court."
The rankings are based on an evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.
To be eligible for a ranking, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is included in Best Lawyers as part of the annual peer review assessment.
