Levinson Axelrod, P.A. is pleased to announce that Partner Richard J. Marcolus has been named to Monmouth County’s Top Lawyers 2021 as published by Monmouth Health and Life magazine! Rich was recognized in the Workers’ Compensation category.
To create its Top Lawyers list, Monmouth Health and Life worked with Professional Research Services (PRS) to conduct peer-review surveys of hundreds of active lawyers across the county. Surveyed attorneys were asked to select peers whom they deem as the “best” within 30 different specialties, and whom they would entrust with a case should they have legal needs of their own.
Given that the Top Lawyers list is based solely on an attorney’s standing among their peers, selection to the final list says a lot about the respect attorneys have earned in their areas of practice.
