The Firm is pleased to announce Shareholder Perry Browder was recently selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2013®, an esteemed peer-reviewed publication. Best Lawyers is regarded as a credible and definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States by both the legal profession and the public. The list identifies Browder as one of the top lawyers in the “personal injury litigation – plaintiffs” category.
“Perry has always been a tremendous asset to the firm and, most importantly, his clients,” said Michael Angelides, Managing Shareholder of Simmons Hanly Conroy LLC.
With nearly 25 years of experience as an attorney, Browder has litigated complex cases in Illinois and throughout the country. Since joining the Firm in 2001, Browder has represented hundreds of asbestos cases and recovered millions of dollars on their behalf. He has played a key role in some of the largest asbestos verdicts in the country, including a $250 million verdict against U.S. Steel.
Browder has also achieved an “AV Rating”, the highest possible peer-revised rating a lawyer can receive, from Martindale-Hubble. He has been included in the “Super Lawyers” list in the Illinois Super Lawyers Magazine since 2011, and has also been recognized for by the Illinois Bar Foundation board for supporting charitable legal work for the less fortunate.
“It is truly an honor to receive this recognition,” Browder said. “My first priority has always been my clients. I consider it a privilege to represent them. Receiving this distinction is truly humbling.”
About Best Lawyers in America
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers (Copyright 2012 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, SC) 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. 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.”
