Matthews & Associates Law Firm has been chosen as one of the Best Law Firms in America by U.S. News & World Report. The distinction is awarded as a result of feedback from clients, professional references, and lawyers across the country. Matthews & Associates is honored in 2019 as a Tier 1 firm representing plaintiffs in personal injury lawsuits.
For eligibility, a law firm must have at least one attorney who is recognized in the current edition of Best Lawyers in a “Best Law Firms” ranked practice area / metro area. Attorney David P. Matthews, the founder of Matthews & Associates Law Firm, has been listed in the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Lawyers in America since 2016, for his personal injury work representing plaintiffs.
The U.S. News & World Report Best Law Firms explains its methodology: “Clients and/or Professional References are emailed a survey addressing a firm’s expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, and whether they would refer another client to the firm. Data is also collected from Best Lawyers ballots, which can only be completed by attorneys who are currently recognized by Best Lawyers.”
Tier 1 Ranking
Matthews & Associates has the highest ranking available, a “Tier 1.” The “Best Law Firms” web site explains that because selected firms were often separated by small or insignificant differences in overall score, they use a tier system rather than ranking law firms sequentially.
