Fisher & Phillips Announces Dallas Managing Partner Michael Abcarian as a 2013 Top Rated Lawyer in Labor & Employment

Dallas, TX, November 06, 2013 --( Michael Abcarian, managing partner of the Dallas office of the national labor and employment law firm Fisher & Phillips LLP has been selected as a ‘2013 Top Rated Lawyer in Labor & Employment’ by American Lawyer Media and Martindale-Hubbell™ and designated him with their AV Preeminent peer review rating. Abcarian has been named to the list since 2011, making this the third consecutive year of being recognized as a Top Rated Lawyer.

The AV Preeminent peer review rating is known throughout the industry as the highest rating in legal ability and ethical standards. This rating is generated from evaluations of lawyers by other members of the bar and the judiciary in the United States and Canada. Ratings are based on performance in five key areas: legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability, and legal experience.

For more than 30 years, Abcarian has represented both private and public employers, large and small, handling everything from large class actions and other complex litigation cases in both federal and state courts, to hundreds of individual plaintiff cases. He appears frequently before agencies like the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, the National Labor Relations Board, and the U.S. Department of Labor. Abcarian is a sought-after speaker and has written extensively on labor and employment law issues.

The ‘Top Rated Lawyers’ listing will appear in the November issue of The American Lawyer & Corporate Counsel magazine.
