Awards Earned by Levinson Axelrod
A History of Excellence, Compassion, & Results
Legal awards are more than votes of approval or popularity—they are a testament to the legal skill and ethical practices of attorneys who receive them. Award recipients are often determined through rigorous surveying, peer reviews, research into case results and trial performance, and more. Many awards recipients are often determined through what their adversaries and judges have said about them, indicating that these awards are not about likeability, but legal ability.
The awards and honors given to Levinson Axelrod lawyers include:
- Perfect 10.0 Avvo Rating
- Inclusion in the Super Lawyers list
- Recognized by Best Lawyers since 2014
- Selected to the list of Best Law Firms in America 2020
- TopVerdict 2018: Firm Secured 5 of Top 50 Verdicts in New Jersey
- Membership in the National Trial Lawyers’ Top 100
- Membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum
- Membership in the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum
- New Jersey Certification in Civil Trial and Workers’ Comp Law
These lists search to find the highest-quality, highest-performing attorneys in New Jersey, and even the country. As a result, award recipients for some of these groups represent the top 5% of attorneys (or less) in their practice areas—in our case, the competitive practice area of personal injury law. Each of these lists is not about giving each attorney a congratulatory pin, but providing plaintiffs with a way to find the best attorneys in their area that meets their needs. Levinson Axelrod is proud to have received these awards in recognition of our ethics, skill, compassion, and history of case results on behalf of our clients.
Certified in Civil Trial Law & Workers’ Compensation
While not strictly an award, one of the distinctions of our firm is that all 10 of our active partners have been certified either in Civil Trial Law or Workers’ Compensation Law in the state of New Jersey. Certification is achieved by only 3% of practicing lawyers, and it is easy to see why—the certification process rigorously evaluates an attorney’s trial experience, performance, and knowledge.
Performance reviews are conducted by the judges before whom an attorney has appeared, as well as the adversaries that have worked against our lawyers. It also includes an extensive written examination that tests an attorney’s expertise in his or her practice area. In the end, when an attorney has achieved certification, it means their opponents and previous judges acknowledged and approved of their legal expertise. When our clients work with our certified specialists, they know their claim is in good hands.
