For their exceptional legal services and client advocacy, Pittman, Dutton & Hellums has earned the designation “Best Law Firms” in 2016 from U.S. News – Best Lawyers®. The firm has been recognized as a Tier 1 Firm for Personal Injury Litigation Plaintiff and Tier 2 for Commercial Litigation in Birmingham, AL.

A Top Honor in the Legal Industry

The “Best Law Firms” designation is widely respected in the legal industry as a sign of exceptional professionalism. This honor recognizes firms for the highest levels of expertise and client services. It is granted based on tens of thousands of client evaluations and peer reviews. Clients provide feedback on the firm’s skills, knowledge, responsiveness, cost-effectiveness, rapport with clients, and whether clients would refer the firm to other people. Lawyers vote on similar factors, as well as on the integrity of the firm and if they are a good competitor. The purpose of the “Best Law Firms” rankings is to help referring lawyers and clients find appropriate legal advice.

This is the sixth year of the “Best Law Firms” rankings. This year’s list is based on the highest number of client ballots and participating firms since the rankings began. To be eligible for the “Best Law Firms” designation, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America®. This honor recognizes the top four percent of practicing attorneys in the U.S. for outstanding legal representation.
