BHBC Recognized as U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” 2021®

On Behalf of | Nov 10, 2020 | Blog

U.S. News – Best Lawyers® has recognized Birch Horton Bittner & Cherot in its recent release of “Best Law Firms” 2021®.  The firm received one national ranking, three regional tier 1 rankings, two regional tier 2 rankings and 1 regional tier 3 ranking.

Firms included in the 2021 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with consistently high ratings from clients and peers.  Achieving these rankings indicates a distinctive combination of quality law practice and extensive legal expertise.

The U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a combination of client feedback, information gathered from surveys, and peer reviews from leading attorneys in their field.  To be eligible for a ranking, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is included in Best Lawyers® in that particular practice area and metropolitan region.

In August, U.S. News – Best Lawyers® announced that BHBC attorney George R. Pitts had been selected as 2021 Best Lawyers “Lawyer of the Year” Litigation-Bankruptcy in Washington D.C.  Only one lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade markedly significant.  Mr. Pitts has twice received the “Lawyer of the Year” designation in 2015 and now 2021.

The 2021 rankings are based on the highest lawyer and firm participation on record, with 8.3 million evaluations of more than 110,000 individual leading lawyers from more than 22,000 firms.  Awards were given in 75 national practice areas and 127 metropolitan practice areas.
