Nineteen attorneys and nine individual offices also recognized for excellence in immigration.
Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen, and Loewy, LLP is pleased to announce that it has been named “Law Firm of the Year” in the practice of Immigration Law by Best Lawyers. This marks the first time the publication has conferred this award in the field of Immigration Law.
Underscoring the significance of this award are the criteria used to determine its winner. Among them are surveys of the firm’s clients and the standing in which the firm is held among its peers in the industry. According to Best Lawyers, the rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that included thousands of clients, highly skilled lawyers and law firm representatives.
The Best Lawyers publication went on to recognize 19 of Fragomen’s attorneys across 11 offices as “Best Lawyers” for 2012 for their outstanding practice of immigration law. In addition to this recognition, U.S. News – Best Lawyers placed Fragomen in its “National First-Tier Rankings” for Immigration Law, as well as including nine of the Firm’s United States offices on the “Metropolitan First-Tier Rankings”.
These awards come on the heels of last month’s announcement that Partner Austin T. Fragomen had been named the 2012 New York City Best Lawyers Immigration Law Lawyer of the Year.
