Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo (AALRR) is proud to announce its inclusion on the 2018 U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” list. Firms included on this prestigious national list are recognized for their professional excellence and persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. This is the third year AALRR has received this distinguished honor.
The criteria considered for ranking on this list are some of the most vigorous in the country. This year, over 13,000 law firms across the United States were assessed, with just a fraction receiving Best Law Firm status. To be eligible for a ranking, law firms must have at least one lawyer named to U.S. News’ "Best Lawyers in America" list. Three AALRR attorneys currently appear on that list, including facilities and construction attorneys Terry Tao and Mary Salamone, and tax lawyer John James. As noted by U.S. News, “Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.” Our firm achieved Metropolitan Tier 1 Status in Tax Law on this year’s list.
“We are immensely proud to be recognized again this year by U.S. News and Best Lawyers,” commented Managing Partner Mark Palin. “Our attorneys in this practice area have an unmatched depth of experience in ensuring the best outcomes for our clients, and this award validates their work.”
