Best Law Firms rankings are published annually following a rigorous process that includes client and lawyer evaluations, peer review by leading attorneys in key practice areas, and an editorial review of information provided by law firms. To be eligible for a ranking in a particular practice area, a law firm must have at least one lawyer included in the Best Lawyers in America guide. Thirteen Provost Umphrey attorneys were selected earlier this year.

Provost Umphrey earned the Metropolitan Tier 1 designation based on the firm’s litigation work for plaintiffs involving mass torts, personal injury, and product liability claims.
