U.S. News & World Report recently recognized the West Palm Beach personal injury law firm of attorney David J. Glatthorn as being one of the "Best Law Firms" in 2016, an award that attorney Glatthorn said he was honored to receive for his hard work on behalf of clients.
"As an attorney, I work tirelessly on behalf of every single client I represent in South Florida," Glatthorn said. "That's why it's such an honor for everyone at my law firm to be recognized for our hard work. U.S. News & World Report uses a rigorous system to select law firms for this list. Being chosen by such a respected organization means a lot to us. That's because it means we're clearly doing our job right on behalf of the clients who rely on us."
According to U.S. News & World Report, the company selects law firms for its list based on several criteria. In particular, the organization's website states, "To be eligible to participate in the 'Best Law Firms' submission process, a firm must have at least one attorney who has received high enough peer-review to be listed in the current edition of Best Lawyers. Firms are eligible in the practice area(s) and metro region(s) in which they have listed lawyers."
Attorney Glatthorn has received other honors for his work on behalf of injury victims and their families in West Palm Beach and throughout South Florida. In 2014 and 2015, attorney Glatthorn was selected by fellow attorneys for inclusion in an annual publication titled "The Best Lawyers in America."
And for more than 25 years, attorney Glatthorn has been classified as a Board Certified specialist in Civil Trial Law, a distinction achieved by only 4 percent of lawyers in Florida. Attorney Glatthorn is also a member of the "Million Dollar Advocates Forum," an organization reserved for attorneys who have obtained verdicts and settlements valued at more than $1 million for clients. Attorney Glatthorn's notable case results include $15 million in a bad faith car accident case and a $3.4 million settlement involving a truck, bus accident.
"I understand what's at stake every time someone calls and asks for my help," attorney Glatthorn said. "Often, the people who contact me have sustained a serious, life-changing injury. The money I help obtain for them can be the difference between being able to live a normal life or facing financial ruin. That's why I take each case so seriously. That's why it's such an honor to have our firm selected as one of the "Best Law Firms" in America. Such awards remind us that we're on the right track and doing the right thing for people when they need us most."
