Six McMath Wood P.A. lawyers, including Carter C. Stein, Sarah C. Jewell, James Bruce McMath, Neil Chamberlin, Will Bond, and Samuel E. Ledbetter, were recently recognized by The Best Lawyers in America®️ in the 29th edition of the publication. Mr. Bond and Mr. Ledbetter were additionally recognized as “Lawyer of the Year” for their respective handling of Little Rock personal injury and environmental law cases.
First published in 1983, attorneys named in The Best Lawyers in America®️ publication are peer-nominated before being added to a ballot for voting by fellow attorneys. The publication requests that the candidates’ peers rank the nominee from 1 to 5 based on their knowledge of the candidate’s handling of various practical legal scenarios. There’s also a section on the ballot in which respondents can self-report any additional information they deem pertinent to the appropriateness of a prospective attorney nominee’s mention in this publication.
Researchers on The Best Lawyers in America®️ team review the submissions, narrowing down the pool to the top 5% of candidates. The research team moves forward with a more thorough screening of those attorneys’ backgrounds, which includes reviewing their official records to confirm their law license is in good standing and that they don’t have any past or present ethics violations on file with the Arkansas Bar Association and perhaps bar associations in other states where they’ve previously been licensed.
The Best Lawyers in America®️ team reaches out to that elite class of lawyers who pass this final added layer of screening, letting them know they’ll be recognized in the award’s public release.
Having just one lawyer get recognized at a Little Rock law firm would be an honor within itself. The idea of six lawyers from a single firm being so highly respected by their attorney peers that they are all named The Best Lawyers in America®️ is a testament to the fact that we put our best feet forward in every situation. Our online reviews give us confidence in knowing that our clients appreciate the work that we do on their behalf. This peer recognition reinforces for us that fellow attorneys hold us in high esteem as well.
Our McMath Woods P.A. legal team prides itself in giving its Little Rock clients personal attention in their injury, environmental, and employment law cases. We are immensely proud of our legal team and their accomplishments.
