Nauman, Smith, Shissler & Hall, LLP has received a Tier 1 ranking in the 2014 Edition of U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms.” Firms included in the 2014 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.
Nauman Smith’s Tier 1 ranking was determined through the firm’s overall evaluation, which was compiled from a combination of exceptional client feedback, the high regard that lawyers in other firms in the same practice area have for the firm, and information provided by Nauman Smith in response to a request by U.S. News – Best Lawyers.
The 2014 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. Over 12,000 attorneys provided over 330,000 law firm assessments, and almost 7,000 clients provided close to 20,000 evaluations.
To be eligible, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America©, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the US. Managing Partner Craig J. Staudenmaier was selected as one of The Best Lawyers in America in the practice area of Commercial Litigation.
