Once again, Crandall & Pera Law is proud to announce that Steve Crandall has been selected for inclusion in the 26th edition of the Best Lawyers in America publication. The honor represents his fifth selection that recognizes his work in personal injury and medical malpractice. Steve was previously named Best Lawyers Medical Negligence Lawyer of the Year in 2019 and Crandall & Pera was named a Best Lawyers Law Firm in both 2020 and 2021.
Within the industry, being named to Best Lawyers is a monumental accomplishment due to its status as the “oldest and most highly-respected peer review guide to the legal profession worldwide.” Unlike a majority of other publications, opinions of both colleagues and opposing legal counsel determine who is selected.
Millions of attorneys are nominated, but only one percent receive inclusion.
How the Best Lawyers process works
Attorneys can be nominated for Best Lawyers by colleagues, clients, judges, and any other third party. Their work undergoes a review and evaluation by attorneys who hold the distinction of being on the list. After the vote and the tallying of scores, only lawyers who received the highest evaluations move on. Upon approval, Best Lawyers ensures that the nominee is in good standing with any local bar associations.
Unlike other objective rating services, Best Lawyers does not guarantee that inclusion in one year does not guarantee the same in the next. Even though this year’s nominations will automatically be nominated next year, the attorney still has to prove worthiness for the publication. In addition, no attorney can purchase a place on the list. The selection must be earned.
We are excited about Steve Crandall’s selection and, admittedly, not at all surprised. With or without accolades from his peers, he remains unwavering in his unparalleled pursuit of justice for his clients.
Congratulations, Steve. Once again, we couldn’t be prouder of your much-deserved recognition. Here’s to number six.
