SAN DIEGO, Calif. (Sept. 1, 2010) — Four partners at Casey Gerry — a San Diego based law firm specializing in civil litigation and personal injury — will be featured in the 2011 edition of Best Lawyers in America, a prestigious national ranking of attorneys selected through an exhaustive annual peer-review process.
Longtime Casey Gerry partners David S. Casey, Jr., Robert J. Francavilla, Thomas D. Penfield and Frederick Schenk are featured in the 17th edition of Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. This is the fifth consecutive year Casey and Schenk have been featured, the third year for Francavilla and the first time Penfield has been recognized.
The 2011 edition features nearly 40,000 attorneys in 80 specialties and covers all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Lawyers were selected for inclusion by fellow attorneys – with this year’s peer review process totaled more than 3.1 million detailed evaluations.
Because of the rigorous methodology and because participants are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in the annual ranking is considered a singular honor. According to Steven Naifeh, president of Best Lawyers, “we continue to believe – as we have for 28 years – that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of recognition in the legal profession.”
The Casey Gerry partners included in the publication each have extensive expertise in all aspects of consumer law:
