Berry Law was named the veterans Disability Rights Law Firm of the Year. The team at Berry Law is excited to be receiving such a prestigious award that reflects the values of our company.

Outstanding Trial Lawyer Award

The National Law Journal recognizes outstanding law firms for their work in all areas of law. Throughout the year, this organization constantly scans the legal field and takes note of law firms that are exceptionally successful on the national stage. Founded in 2012, the Elite Trial Lawyers award has been firmly established as a coveted award. Winners are invited to attend a ceremony in Miami, Florida.

Criteria

The main criterion is that the firm has completed at least one significant case in the past year. A significant case means winning a major, high-stakes, settlement. This normally involves an outcome that significantly affects litigation strategy or the results in similar cases nationally. Firms should devote at least 50% of their litigation resources to plaintiff work.

Apart from the main criterion, the National Law Journal also examines the following for consideration of this award:

  • Performance in significant cases, including key rulings, victories at trial, and settlements
  • The importance of the case(s).
  • Verdict dollar amount, size of punitive damages penalties, cash settlements
  • Complexity of procedure and substantive law
  • Duration of case, and/or number of class members
  • Willingness to take on large cases and to persevere in the face of adversity
  • Volume of cases handled in a particular time period (sum of accumulated verdicts or settlements)
  • The novelty of claim, cause of action, or theory of recovery
  • Impact – litigation results that changed a government, business practice
