Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the "Lawyer of the Year," making this accolade particularly significant. Mr. Berger was selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer review assessments.
According to Best Lawyers®, “receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.”
In addition to the "Lawyer of the Year" award, Max Berger was also listed in the 2019 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America in the following practice areas:
- Mass Tort Litigation / Class Actions - Plaintiffs
- Professional Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become widely regarded as one of the definitive guides to legal excellence.
