Chaffin Luhana Partners and Associates Named to 2017 NY Super Lawyers List
New York, New York—September 21, 2017— Chaffin Luhana LLP, a national plaintiffs-only law firm, is proud to announce that Super Lawyers, a rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement, has selected and honored four of our attorneys. This is an exclusive list, recognizing no more than five percent of attorneys in the New York metro.
Co-founding partner Eric Chaffin was selected for the eighth year in a row to the prestigious New York Metro Super Lawyers list of 2017. 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.
Partner Roopal Luhana was also named to the New York Super Lawyers list this year for the fifth year in a row, after being named as a Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2011 and 2012, an honor reserved for no more than two-and-a-half percent of lawyers in New York.
Other attorneys honored include Kendra Goldhirsch, a products liability attorney, who was named a Super Lawyers Rising Star for the third year in a row; and Dori Milner, a mass torts attorney, who was named a Super Lawyers Rising Star for the fourth year in a row.
“We are honored to have four of our attorneys recognized again by this prestigious rating service,” said founder Eric Chaffin, “New York is an extremely competitive legal market and attracts the best and the brightest in most areas of practice. To be selected as among the best attorneys in one of the toughest markets is a significant achievement, and we’re pleased that it communicates to our clients our firm’s dedication to their needs.”
Bar associations and courts across the country have recognized the legitimacy of the Super Lawyers selection process, which uses a multi-phase rating process involving independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations to choose those attorneys who are best able to assist consumers. After examining the Super Lawyer selection process, the New Jersey Supreme Court reported that the “procedures are very sophisticated, comprehensive and complex.”
The Super Lawyers research staff looks for attorneys who have attained certain honors, then evaluates them 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. The final list of Super Lawyers 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.
