Pugh Accardo is pleased to announce its inclusion in the 2017 U.S. News “Best Law Firms” rankings. The firm earned a Tier 1 metropolitan ranking for its defense work in the areas of products liability and construction litigation. In addition, the firm was recognized locally for its work in commercial litigation, labor & employment litigation, and mass tort / class action defense.
This is the second consecutive year the firm has been recognized by U.S. News. Firms included in the 2017 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Receiving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal experience. The 2017 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. The full lists are available here.
To be eligible, a firm must have at least one lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, one of the oldest and most respected peer-review publications in the legal profession. Earlier in the year, Pugh Accardo partners Maura Z. Pelleteri and Francis P. Accardo were recognized by Best Lawyers. Ms. Pelleteri has been named to the list for eight consecutive years; Mr. Accardo has been recognized for the third year in a row.
