Ashcraft & Gerel has been ranked among the nation’s top legal firms by U.S. News — Best Lawyers® in the 2021 Edition of “Best Law Firms.” Over our 65 years in practice, our firm has garnered much recognition from our clients and peers, and we are honored to receive both national and regional rankings in this renowned publication.
“Best Law Firms” ranks top legal firms using a three-tier system. Firms that receive the highest reviews from their peers and clients are placed in Tier 1 according to legal practice area and geographic location. Thus, to earn a ranking, the legal community must regard a law firm as exemplary in its practice, as evidenced by previously demonstrated legal skill and any past achievements. Moreover, a firm must have at least one attorney who was listed in the corresponding year’s publication of The Best Lawyers in America©, which includes only the top 6% of practicing lawyers in the United States.
This is not the first time we have received rankings in “Best Law Firms,” as we were previously listed in the 2020 Edition. In the most recent edition, we earned a national Tier 1 ranking for our work on behalf of plaintiffs in Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions. We also earned regional rankings for Washington, D.C., placing in Tier 1 for Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions - Plaintiffs, Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs, and Workers’ Compensation Law - Claimants. Lastly, we were regionally ranked in Tier 3 for Medical Malpractice Law – Plaintiffs in Washington, D.C.
Our legal team at Ashcraft & Gerel is proud to be recognized for our hard work and dedication to providing compassionate representation to our clients. We are also committed to bettering our community, such as through The Martin E. Gerel Memorial Scholarship aimed at helping union members and their families with education-related costs.
