The Best Lawyers publication works to name the best lawyers in large legal communities and is currently in their 18th edition. This year, James R. Jansen has been named “Madison Best Lawyers Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs Lawyer of the Year.”
One lawyer is chosen in each specialty in a community and honored as “Lawyer of the Year.” This is done by conducting many peer review studies in order to determine which lawyer shows the best ability, integrity and professionalism.
In 2012, more than 3.9 million evaluations of lawyers were done by other lawyers. The President of Best Lawyers, Steven Naifeh stated that recognition from peers is one of the highest forms of recognition and congratulated Jansen on his hard work.
