Our Awards and Honors

With so many lawyers today claiming personal injury expertise, how do you separate the wheat from the chaff? You want a law firm that is not only experienced in the law and the courtroom but also recognized and honored in the field for its excellence, leadership, and passion.

You get that and more with Wagner McLaughlin.

The law firm was recently honored with a Tier 1 ranking in the 2013 Edition of U.S. News and World Report – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms.” This leading ranking, among nearly 10,000 firms in 177 cities across the nation, is derived mostly from client feedback and the opinions of the law firm’s peers in the community. Wagner McLaughlin is honored to have been among the law firms chosen, and we will always work hard to merit the continued trust of our clients and the respect of our peers.

In addition, Bill Wagner, John McLaughlin, Alan Wagner, and Kevin McLaughlin are listed in The Best Lawyers in America (www.bestlawyers.com) among plaintiffs’ personal injury litigators. This annual directory rates the nation’s attorneys on their experience, professional reliability, and legal qualifications on the basis of attorneys’ and judges’ opinions, written questionnaires, and personal interviews. Our firm’s five most senior attorneys are also listed in Florida Super Lawyers 2014 (www.superlawyers.com), which highlights attorneys who have attained a high degree of recognition and professional achievement, using a rigorous selection process involving peer evaluations and independent research. Only five percent of the state’s attorneys receive the “Super Lawyers” designation.

The firm’s five most senior attorneys have earned ratings of “AV Preeminent,” the highest rating possible from the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory.

The honors conferred on Wagner McLaughlin partners are too numerous to list. But high on that list would have to be the election of the firm’s four most senior attorneys to the American College of Trial Lawyers (www.ACTL.com), an honor limited to fewer than one percent of the nation’s lawyers. The College is widely considered to be the premier professional trial organization in America. Two of the firm’s attorneys are also invited members of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers (www.IATL.net), an honor reserved for only a limited number of trial attorneys.
