Sixteen lawyers from Searcy Denney Scarola Barnhart & Shipley were recently recognized in the publication Best Lawyers in America 2016 for their success in representing plaintiffs in medical malpractice, professional malpractice, product liability, mass tort litigation, commercial litigation and personal injury litigation. Searcy Denney has the highest number of attorneys listed in Best Lawyers compared to other plaintiff personal injury law firms in Florida.
Particularly significant was the selection of West Palm Beach, Florida, “Lawyers of the Year” Jack Scarola (2016 Medical Malpractice Law – Plaintiffs), Karen Terry (2016 Product Liability Litigation – Plaintiffs) and Brenda Fulmer (2016 Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions—Plaintiffs).
Only a single lawyer in each practice and metropolitan area is honored as “Lawyer of the Year.” Since it was first published in 1993, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Its selection process is based upon an exhaustive peer-review survey designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues in the same geographical and legal practice area.
Also selected by peer review for inclusion in the same edition of Best Lawyers were Chris Searcy, Greg Barnhart, John Shipley, Sia Baker-Barnes, Brian Denney, Mariano Garcia, James Gustafson, Jack Hill, Darryl Lewis, William Norton, Edward Ricci, Chris Speed and Calvin Warriner.
