Our firm has garnered recognition from a variety of publications, media outlets, and organizations including Chambers USA, National Law Journal, Daily Journal, and Law360.
The firm’s ratings as preeminent lawyers by leading legal publications are matched by our prominence as leaders in national and local Bar organizations, as well as our selection to federal and state Bench-Bar committees. Many Bird Marella attorneys are members of the American College of Trial Lawyers. The firm’s professional renown helps us achieve our clients’ goals in the courtroom and facilitates prompt, just, and favorable pretrial settlements without the expense of a trial. Ultimately, the results we obtain for our clients are the source of our firm’s reputation. While Bird Marella has had its share of headline-grabbing cases, many of our victories are achieved by under-the-radar resolutions because that is how our clients want it.
