Barker & Zimmerman recently received the nomination for the 2014 Litigator Award. In order to be eligible for this award, a law firm must demonstrate an “Exemplary Regulatory Record,” not to mention additional litigation achievements on top of respected practice and outstanding verdict outcome. While there is a more extensive characterization for what a firm needs to do in order to receive a nomination for the award, Barker & Zimmerman have surpassed and demonstrated all of it.
The award itself is offered up by the Trial Lawyer’s Board of Regents, which is the local governing body that is in charge of nominations and is completely based on the ability to handle trials before and during the court process, not to mention appellate practice as well.
The law firm of Barker & Zimmerman features over two decades of experienced in personal injury law. Beyond this, the law firm holds a Florida Bar Board Certification, which is the highest level of experience possible for a civil trial lawyer inside of the state of Florida. Attorney Baker has gone on record to state just how pleased he is with the nomination and that the firm does its very best every single day for its clients, and that everything is about best representing the client as the job of a law firm is not to receive awards, but it is nice to be appreciated in this way.
There are over 1.1 million lawyers considered for the particular award, and only around a dozen per state actually receive a nomination, so just receive the general nomination is a true honor, as it signals the firm is head and shoulders above the others in the state. All of the nominated firms do share a common element though: each has won different cases that eventually surpassed verdicts or settlements with over a million dollars for their client, with many receiving multi-million dollar verdicts. In total, less than one percent of all civil trial lawyers are able to make such a claim
The award itself is going to be presented and announced on the 15th of January next year, so just around a month away.
