MOBILE, Ala. – Benchmark Litigation has published its 2017 directory of leading law firms and the personal injury firm of Cunningham Bounds, LLC received Benchmark’s top ranking of “Highly Recommended – Local Litigation Firms.” Cunningham Bounds was one of only 10 law firms in Alabama to receive this honor.
In addition to Cunningham Bounds’ firm ranking, seven of its attorneys were named “Local Litigation Stars” in this year’s guide: Greg Breedlove, Joseph “Buddy” Brown, Toby Brown, David Cain, Jr., Robert Cunningham, George “Skip” Finkbohner, and Steve Olen. This edition of Benchmark Litigation also noted Robert Mitchell on its “Future Stars” list.
Firms and attorneys cannot pay to be recommended for the directory. As noted in the publication, “the results of Benchmark Litigation stem from the culmination of a six-month research period where researchers conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their clients to identify the leading litigators and firms. Firms making the statewide list are considered dominant in their areas, and were recommended as reputable and effective litigators by both clients and peers. Law firms in each local market were divided into ‘highly recommended’ and ‘recommended’ categories. All listed firms were consistently mentioned by peers and clients, but the ‘highly recommended’ firms received the most mentions, and were held as dominant in their particular jurisdiction.”
The list of “Local Litigation Stars” for each state reflects only those individuals who were recommended consistently as reputable and effective litigators by clients and peers. The list of “Future Stars” in each state reflects those partners who were consistently referenced by peers and clients as litigators who are likely to be become “Local Litigation Stars.”
