Clearwater personal injury attorney James Dodson has once again been chosen as one of Tampa’s top-rated lawyers in Tampa Bay Magazine’s special publication, “Tampa’s Top Rated Lawyers 2012 Edition: The Definitive Guide to Legal Representation in Tampa.”
To determine which of the many lawyers in the Tampa Bay area are recognized by their peers as having achieved the highest standards of professional excellence and ethics, Tampa Bay Magazine partnered with LexisNexis-Martindale-Hubbell, the world’s foremost source of independent peer review ratings of attorneys for the past 140 years. Unlike many commercial lawyer referral services, Martindale-Hubbell ratings are not tied to advertising agreements of any kind.
To be chosen for the Tampa Bay Magazine feature article, an attorney must be listed in Martindale-Hubbell as AV Preeminent. This is the highest peer review rating a lawyer can earn.
Martindale-Hubbell peer review ratings are based on confidential opinions of lawyers and judges who participate by invitation in reviewing lawyers with whom they have worked professionally. Rankings are based on the lawyers’ ethics, legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability, and legal experience in their chosen practice area.
Jim has been practicing for more than 25 years, exclusively in the area of plaintiff personal injury. He is the author of a series of consumer books on topics related to various areas of personal injury law, which he provides free to the public on his website. He currently serves as president of the Pinellas Mid-County Bar Association and is a past president of the Clearwater Bar Association.
A member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, Jim has successfully represented people who have suffered serious injuries and families of wrongful death victims, bringing in a number of settlements and jury verdicts of well over a million dollars.
