New York, New York—October 24, 2016— Chaffin Luhana LLP, a national plaintiffs-only law firm, is pleased to announce that Super Lawyers, a rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement, has selected and honored five of the attorneys in the Chaffin Luhana firm.
For the sixth year in a row, managing partner Eric Chaffin has been selected as one of the prestigious New York Metro Super Lawyers of 2016. A “Top-Rated” class action and mass tort attorney in New York, Chaffin was named as one of the top five percent of lawyers in the entire state.
Partner Roopal Luhana was also named as a Super Lawyer this year, for the third year in a row, after also being named as a Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2011 and 2012, an honor reserved to no more than two-and-a-half percent of lawyers in New York.
Other attorneys honored include Kendra Y. Goldhirsch, one of the firms products liability attorneys, who was named a Super Lawyers Rising Star for the second year in a row; Dori Milner, a class action and mass tort attorney, who was named a Super Lawyers Rising Star for the third year in a row; and John Lienert, who was named a Super Lawyers Rising Star, 2016, in Pennsylvania.
“I’m very pleased that so many of our attorneys have been recognized by Super Lawyers,” said founder Eric Chaffin. “It is important to us that our clients know they are represented by professionals who are not only highly educated and experienced, but have a sincere dedication to serving our clients’ goals and needs.”
Bar associations and courts across the country have recognized the legitimacy of the Super Lawyers selection process, which uses a multi-phase rating process involving independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations to choose those attorneys who are best able to assist consumers. After examining the Super Lawyer selection process, the New Jersey Supreme Court reported that the “procedures are very sophisticated, comprehensive and complex.”
The Super Lawyers research staff looks for attorneys who have attained certain honors, then evaluates them on professional achievements such as verdicts and settlements, experience, special licenses and certifications, pro bono and community service, scholarly lectures and writing, representative clients, and more.
Final candidates are grouped according to their primary areas of practice and are rated by panelists on a scale of one to ten. Those with the highest point totals from each category are selected. The final list of Super Lawyers is printed in the Super Lawyers magazine and in leading city and regional magazines across the country as a guide for those individuals seeking quality representation.
