PARSIPPANY — The American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys (“AIOPA”) has recognized the exceptional performance of New Jersey Personal Injury Attorney E. Drew Britcher and named him to its 10 Best Personal Injury Attorneys for Client Satisfaction list for 2015.
The American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys is a third-party attorney rating organization that publishes an annual list of the top 10 personal injury attorneys in each state. Attorneys who are selected to the “10 Best” list must pass AIOPIA’s rigorous selection process, which is based on client and/or peer nominations, thorough research, and AIOPIA’s independent evaluation. AIOPIA’s annual list was created as a resource for clients during the attorney selection process.
One of the most significant aspects of the selection process involves attorneys’ relationships and reputation among his or her clients. As clients should be an attorney’s top priority, AIOPIA places the utmost emphasis on selecting lawyers who have achieved significant success in the field of Personal Injury law without sacrificing the service and support they provide. Selection criteria therefore focus on attorneys who demonstrate the highest standards of Client Satisfaction.
Britcher, who co-founded Britcher Leone, LLC, in Glen Rock, has also been named to New Jersey Super Lawyers for the last 11 consecutive years. In addition, in 2015 he was named for the fourth consecutive year among the state’s Top 10, and for the 10th consecutive year he was named among the Top 100.
