Alaska Personal Injury Law Group member, Richard E. Vollertsen, has been selected for inclusion in the 2008 edition of America’s Leading Litigation Firms and Attorneys. Those selected are identified by Benchmark’s research team, which conducts extensive face-to-face and telephone interviews with the nation’s leading private practice lawyers and in-house counsel in the preceding 12 month period. The purpose of the ranking is to identify those firms and attorneys best able to handle complex litigation matters. The rankings include identification of “local litigation stars” for each state, reflecting only those individuals who were recommended consistently as incontrovertible stars by clients and peers. Mr. Vollertsen was identified in this ranking as a “local litigation star”.
The research results for law firms were also broken down 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 up as being definitively dominant in their particular jurisdiction. Atkinson, Conway & Gagnon, Inc., of which the Alaska Personal Injury Law Group is a division, was identified as “highly recommended” in this ranking, as well. Atkinson, Conway & Gagnon, Inc. was one of only 3 firms in Alaska selected as “highly recommended.”
