U.S. News & World Report Ranks Palmer Polaski as Top Tier Immigration Law Firm in Colorado
Denver, Colorado, September 27th – U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers ranked Palmer Polaski in the top tier of Colorado immigration law firms in their 2010 inaugural issue of Best Law Firms rankings. The rankings, including 30,322 rankings of 8,782 law firms in 81 practice areas, are posted online at www.usnews.com/bestlawfirms. The national first-tier rankings will be featured in the October print issue of U.S.News & World Report, which will go on sale September 27, 2010. Achieving a high ranking is a special distinction that signals a unique combination of excellence and breadth of expertise. All of us here at Palmer Polaski are very humbled to receive this special honor in our very first year of existence. We look forward to continuing to provide the highest level of service and to achieving the best possible results for our clients.
ABOUT BEST LAW FIRMS
The mission of Best Law Firms from the start has been to help guide referring lawyers and clients on issues that have a bet-the-company implication (in the case of a corporation) or a potentially life-changing result (in the case of an individual). By combining hard data with peer reviews, and client assessments, Best Law Firms provides users with the most thorough, accurate, and helpful rankings of law firms ever developed. There was a very high level of response to the national surveys, in which major clients and leading lawyers were asked to rate the law firms they consider best in their practice area. These reputational survey responses were combined with more than 3.1 million evaluations of individual lawyers in these firms in the most recent Best Lawyers survey of leading lawyers. Hard numbers were also used to develop the practice area rankings — data about numbers of lawyers and their previous experience, numbers of clients within different billing ranges, numbers of transactions and litigation matters at different dollar levels; pro-bono commitment, diversity, and other objective data.
