Skelton, Taintor & Abbott Receives First-Tier/Best Law Firm Ranking from U.S. News-Best Lawyers®

Category: Firm News

AUBURN, ME (Nov. 14, 2011) – For the second consecutive year, Skelton, Taintor & Abbott has received impressive placement in the U.S. News-Best Lawyers® ranking of “Best Law Firms” in America. The firm has been given the prestigious “First-Tier” ranking in the following practice areas: family law, health care law, person injury litigation (defendants), product liability litigation (defendants), tax law and trusts and estates law.

Rankings were based on a rigorous evaluation process that included thousands of clients, highly skilled lawyers and law firm representatives. To be eligible for a ranking, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is included in Best Lawyers® as part of the annual peer review assessment. Lawyers voted on expertise, responsiveness, integrity, cost-effectiveness, whether they would refer a matter to a firm, and whether they consider a firm a worthy competitor. A principal enhancement to the methodology used to compile this year’s national rankings included a national ballot in addition to the metropolitan ballots.
