New Orleans, LA – Fowler Rodriguez has been recognized as a 2014 leading law firm in New Orleans, Louisiana and in Gulfport, Mississippi by U.S. News & World Report and The Best Lawyers in America®.
Fowler Rodriguez is specifically noted for its Admiralty & Maritime Law practice. The firm received a Metropolitan Tier 1 ranking for its office in New Orleans and a Metropolitan Tier 2 ranking for its office in Gulfport. The U.S. News and Best Lawyers’ “Best Law Firms” recognition is the result of rigorous evaluation, in which only law firms with attorneys featured in the 19th edition of The Best Lawyers in America are eligible.
George J. Fowler, III, Antonio J. Rodriguez, Norman C. Sullivan, Jr., Edward F. LeBreton, III, and Peter M. Thomson of Fowler Rodriguez’s New Orleans office as well as John A. Scialdone of Gulfport were selected for inclusion in the 19th edition of The Best Lawyers in America as 2014 Best Lawyers. Once a law firm is deemed eligible, U.S. News collects assessments from clients as well as peers and leading attorneys within the same field of law to determine best practice areas.
Clients report on the lawyers’ expertise, cost-effectiveness, and if he or she would refer someone else to the practice. Lawyers are asked to vote based on similar criteria as well as integrity and whether or not they would refer a legal issue to the firm.
To develop its most recent rankings, the publications reviewed 4.3 million evaluations of 68,761 individual leading lawyers. After qualitative and quantitative data is collected, each individual firm is given its own score. Of the 11,098 eligible firms in the nation, 6,894 received the ranking of first-tier national and/or metropolitan.
