PHILADELPHIA – November 6, 2018 — Philadelphia personal injury law firm Feldman Shepherd Wohlgelernter Tanner Weinstock & Dodig LLP has been named a 2019 “Best Law Firm” by U.S. News & World Report – Best Lawyers®, achieving a national tier 1 ranking in mass tort litigation and class actions as well as a Philadelphia regional tier 1 ranking in the practice areas of medical malpractice law, personal injury litigation, and mass tort litigation and class actions.

“It’s always a great honor to be recognized by one’s peers for the success we’ve had on behalf of our clients,” said Alan M. Feldman, Co-Managing Partner of the firm. “We represent people who have suffered a devastating injury and who are at a low point in their lives, and we are keenly aware of the special responsibility we have to help them return to as normal and comfortable a life as possible.”

Firms included in the 2019 “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 a quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.

To be eligible for a Best Law Firm ranking, a firm must have at least one lawyer included in The Best Lawyers in America. In the 2019 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, nine Feldman Shepherd attorneys were selected by their peers for inclusion and recognized for their work in the practice areas of mass tort litigation/class actions, personal injury litigation, medical malpractice law, and product liability litigation.

The Best Law Firms rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in the field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. Ranked firms, presented in tiers, are listed on a national and/or metropolitan scale. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.
