I am happy to announce  that my law practice has been ranked among the “2013 Best Law Firms” by U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers. The rankings, including 30,322 rankings of 8,782 law firms in 81 practice areas, will be featured in the November print issue of U.S.News & World Report.

These rankings, which are presented in tiers, showcase 9,633 different law firms ranked nationally in one or more of 75 major legal practice areas and in metropolitan or state rankings in one or more of 119 major legal practice areas. The Law Offices of Alfred C. Frawley III (that’s me!) received rankings in the following practice areas for Portland Maine:

Trademark Law

Copyright Law

Intellectual Property Litigation

“U.S. News is the world’s leading publisher of institutional rankings based on both objective data and peer evaluations,” says Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers. “We are combining this expertise with Best Lawyers’ experience of providing rankings of individual lawyers based on peer reviews for almost three decades. By combining hard data with peer reviews, and client assessments, we believe that we are providing users with the most thorough, accurate, and helpful rankings of law firms ever developed.”

These reputational survey responses were combined with more than 3.1 million evaluations of individual lawyers in these firms in the most recent Best Lawyers survey of leading lawyers. Hard numbers were also used to develop the practice area rankings — data about numbers of lawyers and their previous experience, numbers of clients within different billing ranges, numbers of transactions and litigation matters at different dollar levels; pro-bono commitment, diversity, and other objective data.
