Read Schertler Onorato Mead & Sears’ latest news.
The 2020 edition of “Best Law Firms” has awarded Schertler & Onorato’s white-collar criminal defense practice a top “Tier 1” ranking in Washington, D.C. and a “Tier 2” national ranking. S&O also received metropolitan rankings for its general criminal defense practice (Tier 1), bet-the-company litigation (Tier 2), and commercial litigation (Tier 3). The “Best Law Firms” list is a joint undertaking of U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers. Law firm rankings are the result of a rigorous evaluation process that includes client evaluations and peer review. For the 2020 publication, 14,931 law firms throughout the United States were reviewed. As the U.S. News/Best Law Firms press release states: “Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise. . . . Firms that received a tier designation reflect the highest level of respect a firm can earn among other leading lawyers and clients from the same communities and practice areas.”
