Now in its third consecutive year, the U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” referral guide ranks U.S. law firms nationally in 80 major legal practice areas and by metropolitan areas or states in as many as 118 major legal practice areas. Rankings are determined through client and lawyer evaluations, peer reviews from leading attorneys and information that law firms submit to U.S. News – Best Lawyers. Clients provide feedback on firms’ practice areas with regard to expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a client’s business and needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, and whether a client would refer another client to the firm.

“We are extremely grateful for this prestigious recognition from U.S. News-Best Lawyers for many of our firm’s highly touted practice groups and attorneys,” said Greensfelder President Vincent J. Garozzo. “We take great pride in the fact that these high rankings were driven by positive comments and feedback from our valued clients in St. Louis, Chicago, Belleville, Ill., and throughout the nation.”

All national first-tier rankings will be featured in a special U.S. News & World Report Money issue in November 2012. The national and metropolitan first-tier rankings will appear in the 2012 “Best Law Firms” standalone publication, while all rankings are posted online at http://bestlawfirms.usnews.com.
