Our personal injury attorney, James “Jim for Justice” Kelleher, has been recognized by the American Institute of Legal Counsel’s “Top 10 Attorneys” in Florida. The organization started in 2014 to identify excellence in the legal field and provide clients that information so they can benefit from the rating and recognition. Membership is an exclusive honor only given to a select few who are at the top of their profession and dedicated to client satisfaction.
The Personal Injury Division of the Institute not only wants to recognize successful attorneys and firms such as The Kelleher Firm but specifically those who’ve done so to benefit their client. James Kelleher has been fighting for injured victims since 1984 and his Google reviews and Avvo reviews speak to his dedication to clients. Very few attorneys meet the stringent criteria to be on the “Top 10 Attorneys” list and display a website badge or office plaque showcasing this achievement. The value the division places on plaintiff satisfaction helps clients make educated decisions when it comes to choosing their attorney.
The selection process for the American Institute’s “Top 10 Attorneys” by state starts with a nomination by the organization itself, a client, or fellow attorney and involves evaluating these qualities and accomplishments:
- An Outstanding Client Rating History
- Standing Member of the Florida State Bar
- Impeccable Client and Peer Reviews
- Received Advanced Degrees
- Awards and Recognitions
- Memberships and Work with Professional Associations
- Publications, Speaking Engagements, and Writings in their Field of Expertise
- No history of disciplinary action or investigation by the Attorney Grievance Committee
The goal behind these extensive criteria is to find personal injury attorneys who have attained the highest degree of professional achievement by putting the client first. The process requires three main steps. The first of which is the nomination itself which can come from peers, current and former clients, or the American Institute’s review committee. The committee then researches the nominee to determine whether their client ratings and successful history meet or exceed the required qualifications. Lastly, the final selection process decides the ten best recipients, which means this list is often comprised of the Best of the Best.
The American Institute’s “Top 10 Attorneys” list doesn’t stop at just recognizing the attorneys and law firms but encourages them to continue to strive for excellence in their field and everyday interactions with injured clients. That also includes resolving any concerns and providing a beneficial solution to the client and staying in good standing with the Florida State Bar.
James Kelleher has also been recognized by the American Board of Trial Advocates, Lawyers of Distinction, and the National Trial Lawyers. View his most recent achievements, case results, and read what our clients have to say on our reviews page.
