Phelan Petty is proud to announce that that the firm was once again selected for inclusion in the annual U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” list. This year, the firm received two Tier 1 rankings, for Medical Malpractice Law – Plaintiffs and Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs.
Only law firms with at least one attorney who has been named to Best Lawyers will be eligible for selection. Firms cannot purchase a place on the list, and inclusion one year does not guarantee inclusion the next. Phelan Petty has repeatedly made the annual “Best Law Firms” list, and both named partners have been recognized by Best Lawyers for more than a decade.
