U.S News & World Report and Best Lawyers announced the 2017 "Best Law Firms" rankings last week, and Strindberg & Scholnick made the cut!
From the Press Release:
"Firms included in the 2017 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.
The 2017 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the U.S. Over 10,000 attorneys provided more than 800,000 law firm assessments, and over 10,000 clients provided more than 90,000 evaluations.
Awards were given in 74 national practice areas and 122 metropolitan practice areas. One "Law Firm of the Year" is named in each of the 74 nationally ranked practice areas."
A number of our lawyers have been featured on the "Best Lawyers" lists, and we want to thank all of our peers and clients for helping our firm achieve this ranking!
Lauren Scholnick, managing partner of Strindberg & Scholnick, has been selected by her peers for inclusion in the 23rd Edition of The Best Lawyers in America for her work in employment law!
Lauren was included in last year's edition as well, and was voted Salt Lake's City Lawyer of the Year in the same publication in 2014.
From the Best Lawyer's website, link here:
"Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. A listing in Best Lawyers is widely regarded by both clients and legal professionals as a significant honor, conferred on a lawyer by his or her peers. For more than three decades, Best Lawyers lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media, and the public, as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.
Our lists of outstanding attorneys are compiled by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. If the votes for an attorney are positive enough for inclusion in Best Lawyers, that attorney must maintain those votes in subsequent polls to remain on the list for each edition. Lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate in or be included on our lists."
Strindberg & Scholnick was recognized as Utah's Pro Bono Law Firm of the Year for 2016! This award is given to a law firm that has actively and successfully encouraged pro bono service by their attorneys.
From the Utah State Bar website, "The pro bono community of Utah seeks to recognize those who have provided or enabled the direct provision of legal services, free of charge, for Utah’s most vulnerable citizens – people living in poverty, individuals with disabilities, veterans, seniors, minorities and victims of domestic violence. While the obstacles to equal access to justice continue to mount, the willingness of attorneys to help meet the legal needs of the indigent in their communities is important to those in need of service."
Strindberg & Scholnick is proud to provide help to those in need throughout both Utah and Idaho, and are honored to receive such recognition for their efforts.
Strindberg & Scholnick's namesake, Erik & Lauren were two of 223 Utah attorneys nominated by their peers into Best Lawyers of America 2016. in the same publication, Erik has been chosen as Salt Lake City's "Lawyer of the Year" for the area of employment law (individuals). Congratulations Erik and Lauren!
