Portland, ORAttorneys with Bullard Law have once again been recognized by U.S. News Best Lawyers for 2016.  Of special note, Bullard Law attorney, Thomas I. Kramer was recently selected as 2016 “Lawyer of the Year” for Employee Benefits (ERISA) Law in Portland, Oregon.
Only a single lawyer in each practice area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant.  These lawyers are selected based on exceptional recognition received during the peer-review assessments.  Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity.
Best Lawyers® has recently selected thirteen Bullard Law attorneys to be among The Best Lawyers in America © for 2016. Bullard Law attorneys received this distinguished honor throughout the areas of Employment Law, Labor Law, Employment Litigation and Employee Benefits.
Since 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally recognized as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Corporate Counsel Magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
Best Lawyers 2016 rankings are based entirely on peer review, in which attorneys can be nominated by anyone but themselves and are reviewed by current listed lawyers. An analysis of peer reviews and eligibility checks are made in order to employ a sophisticated, conscientious, rational and transparent survey process designed to determine the quality of legal services. From more than 55,000 leading attorneys, 6.7 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas were analyzed. Since attorneys are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America is considered an honor.
