CKDQ Selected as a Tier 1 Law Firm in the 2015 Edition of “Best Law Firms” by U.S. News and Best Lawyers

U.S. News and Best Lawyers selected CKDQ as a Tier 1 law firm in the 2015 Edition of “Best Law Firms.”  “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.  Because law firms are often separated by small or insignificant differences in overall score, U.S. News uses a tiering system where the first tier in each metropolitan area includes those firms that scored within a certain percentage of the highest-scoring firms.  Of the 12,315 firms that were eligible to submit information for the ranking process, 6,323 firms, including CKDQ, received Tier 1 national and/or metropolitan rankings.
