The Best Lawyers in America list is a distinction based on a stringent peer review and is one of the oldest and most esteemed publications in the legal industry. Beginning in 1983, the process has evolved to include “Best Law Firms” and now “Ones to Watch,” which was recently created to recognize up-and-coming attorneys.
We have been awarded four Tier 1 Rankings. Firms that receive a Tier designation reflect the highest level of respect a firm can earn among other law firms and clients from the same practice areas in their communities.
Our Regional Rankings for the Birmingham Area are as follows:
- Tier 1 in Mass Tort Litigation / Class Actions – Plaintiffs
- Tier 1 in Medical Malpractice Law – Plaintiffs
- Tier 1 in Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs
- Tier 1 in Product Liability Litigation – Plaintiffs
The U.S. News Best Lawyers Purely Peer Review™ process has used the same honest assessment for over 30 years. Lawyers are rated by their colleagues according to geographical location as well as field of practice. Read more about the methodology process here, which details how lawyers are selected.
On behalf of each partner, Pittman, Dutton & Hellums would like to thank our wonderful and generous colleagues for allowing us to receive this honor for the 2021 year. We are humbled and privileged to call many of you our friends and respected allies in the fight for justice and safety.
