Columbia, SC, January 25, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Bluestein, Nichols, Thompson and Delgado is rated among the top law firms in Columbia in three practice areas in the new edition of Best Law Firms in America, the eighth consecutive year the firm has been honored.
BNTD received Tier 1 rankings for the Columbia Metropolitan area for its work in Appellate Practice and Workers’ Compensation Law – Claimants, and Criminal Defense – White-Collar, an area where the firm was first recognized in 2010.
Additionally, the 2017 Best Law Firms in America recognized BNTD as a Tier 2 firm for its work in Criminal Defense - General Practice.
In order to be eligible for inclusion in Best Law Firms, a firm must first place at least one attorney in the annual Best Lawyers in America publication. Four BNTD attorneys – Marti Bluestein, John Nichols, John Delgado and Allison Sullivan – were included in the 2017 edition, with Nichols earning Lawyer of the Year honors in appellate practice.
From there, clients and colleagues are asked to evaluate firms on key factors such as knowledge, responsiveness, cost effectiveness and integrity. Attorneys also are asked if they consider the firm to be a worthy competitor.
The extensive data is then compiled to determine final rankings for Best Law Firms.
“It’s an honor to be included once in Best Law Firms in America,” Bluestein said. “To be included in so many consecutive editions is humbling. It’s gratifying that both our clients and our peers have chosen to recognize our work year after year.”
