Partner James Haggerty Named to 2017 Top 100 Philadelphia Super Lawyers List
Posted By Haggerty, Goldberg, Schleifer & Kupersmith, P.C.
Haggerty, Goldberg, Schleifer & Kupersmith, P.C. is pleased to announce
that Partner James C. Haggerty has been selected for inclusion in the Philadelphia Top 100 list by Super Lawyers® Magazine. As one of the most prestigious achievements in the legal
profession, recognition among the Top Lists curated by
Super Lawyers Magazine sets attorneys even further apart from attorneys who were recognized
in this year’s list of Pennsylvania
Super Lawyers. Mr. Haggerty has also been included on the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers
Top List for 10 years or more demonstrating a high degree of peer recognition
and professional achievement.
Super Lawyers Magazine publishes an annual list of attorneys who have demonstrated the
highest standards of professional achievement and ability. This list is
curated using a rigorous selection process unique to
Super Lawyers, and which consists of various steps that evaluate attorneys on multiple
indicators of professional excellence, including notable case results,
client satisfaction, peer recognition, stature in the legal community
and more. Attorneys who make the final list must pass all phases of the process:
- Nominations – Lawyers must be nominated for consideration and are prohibited
from campaigning for inclusion. Valid nominations come in the form of
peer nominations, third party feedback, votes from the
Super Lawyers research team, or surveys collected from managing partners across the state.
- Independent research – Nominees are independently evaluated using a point system to maintain
objectivity. This independent research vets candidates on multiple factors
that indicate success and professional abilities, and include reviews
of an attorney’s professional accolades, special licenses, standing
with the bar, community service, contribution to the legal field, experience
and education, and representative verdicts or settlements.
- Panel Evaluation – A Blue Ribbon panel evaluates attorneys who earn the highest point
totals during the independent research phase. These panels are comprised
of recognized legal professionals who practice in the same legal areas
as candidates. Based on accumulated point totals from both independent
research and peer evaluation, the top attorneys are selected to the final list.
Attorneys who pass the patented selection process earn final inclusion
in the annual list of
Super Lawyers, which in itself is a significant achievement earned by
no more than 5% of all practicing lawyers in the state! In addition to earning inclusion
to the list of
Super Lawyers, Mr. Haggerty was further distinguished by being selected to the
Super Lawyers Top 100 list.
This additional recognition speaks volumes about the respect Mr. Haggerty
has cultivated throughout the local and legal communities, and places
him among the top legal minds in Philadelphia. Backed by over 30 years
of experience, and a background in insurance defense, Mr. Haggerty has
leveraged his insurance insight to advocate on behalf of the injured and
the wronged, and to level the playing field between clients who face off
against large corporate powers.
Because the attorney one chooses can make all the difference in the outcome
of a case,
Super Lawyers Magazine has become an established resource for legal consumers. Local
residents in need of proven representation can rely on the lists published by
Super Lawyers during the attorney selection phase, and can feel confident about choosing
an attorney who is continually recognized among the top lawyers in the region.
Mr. Haggerty’s experience and his passion for making a true difference
in the lives of victims and families has not only earned him recognition
as a Top Lawyer by
Super Lawyers (and continued inclusion to the list of Pennsylvania
Super Lawyers each year since its inception), but has also driven our firm’s success
and ability to secure millions of dollars in compensation on behalf of
the men, women, and families we represent. We are proud to have Mr. Haggerty
as one of our firm’s founders, and believe his commitment to professional
excellence makes the difference for our clients.
