Chaffin Luhana Partners and Associates Named Outstanding Lawyers in 2018 Super Lawyers List
New York, New York—September 13, 2018— Chaffin Luhana LLP, a national plaintiffs-only law firm, is proud to announce that five of their lawyers have once again been named “Super Lawyers” for 2018. The Super Lawyers research staff chooses only outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement to be named to their exclusive list, recognizing no more than five percent of attorneys in New York.
Managing and co-founding partner Eric Chaffin received this honor for the ninth year in a row. A top-rated product liability and mass tort attorney, Chaffin co-founded the firm in 2010 and has been named to the Super Lawyers list every year since. He focuses on representing plaintiffs in complex product liability and negligence cases against product manufacturers, retailers, and employers, with many multi-million dollar recoveries. He has also been appointed by federal and state courts to various leadership positions in national plaintiffs litigation and has extensive experience in appellate courts.
Co-founding partner Roopal Luhana was again named to the New York Super Lawyers list for the sixth year in a row, after being named as a Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2011 and 2012, an honor reserved to no more than two-and-a-half percent of lawyers in New York. She is also a top-rated product liability and mass torts attorney and has years of experience in litigation related to protecting women’s rights. She has been recognized by the courts for her commitment to women’s causes and was a panelist at the 2017 Duke Law Conference Panel for Women and Minorities in Leadership Positions in MDLs.
Kendra Goldhirsch, top-rated products liability attorney, was named a Super Lawyers Rising Star for the fourth year in a row. She focuses on complex product liability and mass tort litigation, as well as personal injury cases, fighting for those who have been harmed by defective medical and pharmaceutical products like the 3T Heater Cooler units used in open-heart surgeries, and the blood-thinner Xarelto.
Katherine Mayo, top-rated class-action and mass torts attorney, was also selected as a Super Lawyers Rising Star for the second year in a row, fighting for the rights of individuals, laborers, and landowners injured by defective products, environmental contamination, workplace accidents, and other negligent conduct.
Finally, Patrick Booth, a top-rated personal injury attorney, was selected as a Rising Star for the first time in 2018. He assists clients with both general and product-based personal injury claims throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio.
“Considering the competitive legal market in New York, I’m very honored to have been recognized again by this prestigious rating service,” said founder Eric Chaffin. “I’m even more pleased that the work being done by our team is being acknowledged by our peers. These individuals are among the best and I’m thrilled to have them fighting for our clients’ needs.”
The Super Lawyers research staff employs independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations in a multi-phase rating process to choose those attorneys who are best able to assist consumers. Attorneys who have attained certain honors are evaluated on professional achievements such as verdicts and settlements, experience, special licenses and certifications, pro bono and community service, scholarly lectures and writing, representative clients, and more.
Final candidates are grouped according to their primary areas of practice and are rated by panelists on a scale of one to ten. Those with the highest point totals from each category are selected for the final list, which is printed in the Super Lawyers magazine and in leading city and regional magazines across the country as a guide for those individuals seeking quality representation.
To date, the attorneys at Chaffin Luhana LLP have recovered over $1 billion for their clients during the course of their careers, and the firm itself has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for individually injured plaintiffs. Though unable to guarantee results, the firm has a distinguished track record of success and is highly committed to each case.
