Seven Attorneys Included in The Best Lawyers in America®

Seven lawyers from Kelley/Uustal were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® for their work in plaintiff’s personal injury litigation, including:

Founding partners Kelley and Uustal were also named for their work in the area of plaintiff’s product liability litigation. Both founding partners and several other firm attorneys have been listed in The Best Lawyers repeatedly over the past several years.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel Magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

This is one of many professional accolades received over the years by Fort Lauderdale based law firm Kelley/Uustal. Several of the firm’s lawyers have been named in past editions of Best Lawyers. Robert Kelley has been recognized by Lawyers USA as one of the “Top Ten Lawyers in the United States.”

Kelley has also been selected on several occasions as a finalist for the “Most Effective Lawyers” in South Florida by the editors of the South Florida Daily Business Review. John Uustal has also been named time after time in the American Lawyer’s Top Verdicts of the Year. In addition, Uustal has also received recognition in several editions of Florida Super Lawyers.

At Kelley/Uustal, we are pleased to be included in The Best Lawyers in America® 2013.
