Bachus & Schanker shareholder, Kyle Bachus has been named by Lawdragon to the publication’s Lawdragon 500 Leading Plaintiffs’ Lawyers in America. Bachus’ profile is included online at www.lawdragon.com and will be in the magazine’s Winter 2007 issue, available later this month.
The Lawdragon 500 Leading Plaintiffs’ Lawyers in America is the first publication to offer a comprehensive look at lawyers who represent individual people in cases ranging from catastrophic motor vehicle collisions to Medical Malpractice to securities class actions, often with multi-million dollar results. It is comprised of lawyers from a wide range of practices, ranging from Semi-Truck Accidents to toxic torts, aviation disasters to birth negligence. Those named to the list represent less than one-half of one percent of the legal profession, placing them among the most elite group of legal professionals.
More than 10,000 attorneys were nominated for the list by their peers and the Lawdragon editorial staff, who selected nearly 1,600 finalists, featured as members of the “Lawdragon 3000” at Lawdragon.com. The Lawdragon 500 was selected from that group, based on a proprietary system that takes into account dozens of qualifications that are scored to determine the best lawyers nationwide. Among the factors utilized in the list’s selection are extensive research by a staff of award-winning journalists who interview thousands of lawyers nationwide and a survey of lawyers and clients who nominate and vote for their peers online.
“It is a great honor to be included in this publication among these other gifted attorneys,” Bachus said. “Our law firm has always worked hard to provide individuals and families the power to take on the largest Insurance companies by providing the same dignity and access to legal services previously only available to large corporations.”
“The Lawdragon rankings are intended to inform the public of the nation’s top legal professionals who help those in need. We are enormously proud of the 500 lawyers that we are honoring this year as the best in the country,” said Katrina Dewey, CEO of Lawdragon.
