Szaferman Lakind Named a Tier-1 Metropolitan “Best Law Firm” by U.S. News – Best Lawyers in 2019

U.S. News & World Report has listed Szaferman, Lakind, Blumstein & Blader, P.C. among its 2019 Best Law Firms®*, marking the fifth consecutive year that the firm has received such recognition. Szaferman Lakind has been publicly recognized as a Princeton Metropolitan Region Tier-1 law firm every year since 2014 by U.S. News & World Report.

The firm’s 2019 Best Law Firms recognition includes the following practice areas:
• Commercial Litigation
• Family Law
• Land Use & Zoning Law
• Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs

According to U.S. News & World Report – Best Law Firms, “The U.S. News – Best Lawyers® ‘Best Law Firms’ rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.”

Also noted, “All of the quantitative and qualitative data were combined into an overall ‘Best Law Firms’ score for each firm. This data was then compared to other firms within the same metropolitan area and at the national level. Because firms were often separated by small or insignificant differences in overall score, we use a tiering system rather than ranking law firms sequentially.”

Each firm recognized on the Best Law Firms list, “must have at least one attorney who is recognized in the current edition of Best Lawyers in a ‘Best Law Firms’ ranked practice area/metro area.” In the 2019 edition of Best Lawyers, six (6) Szaferman Lakind attorneys were recognized in five (5) practice areas including Commercial Litigation, Family Law, Land Use and Zoning Law, Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs and Real Estate Law.

Szaferman Lakind Managing Partner Barry Szaferman commented, “On behalf of the Szaferman Lakind family I’d like to thank U.S. News and World Report, the participating lawyers from this area and our clients. It is indeed an honor to have the firm so identified for the fifth consecutive year. Recognition such as that accorded the firm by U.S. News & World Report serves to reinforce our commitment to provide quality services to our clients and the legal community.”
