Pope Flynn Receives Two Tier 1 Metropolitan Rankings, One Tier 2 National Ranking in Public Finance on U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” List

Pope Flynn has received two Tier 1 metropolitan rankings for Public Finance — one for Columbia, SC, and one for Charlotte NC — from The Best Lawyers in America© 2014 (Copyright 2013 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, SC).  In addition, Pope Flynn has received its second national ranking, a Tier 2, in Public Finance. Best Lawyers® collaborates with U.S. News & World Report to rank more than 10,000 U.S. law firms by practice area and collects data through “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.”

To be eligible for a Best Law Firms® ranking, a firm also must have at least one individual lawyer included in the annual Best Lawyers peer-review ranking.  Pope Flynn has three such attorneys recognized by Best Lawyers in the area of Public Finance law: Margaret Pope, who has been listed in Best Lawyers for 11 years; and Joe Lucas, who has been listed in Best Lawyers since 2005. The Best Lawyers lists are compiled through “an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas.”

“In 2013 we received an additional Tier 1 metropolitan ranking and a first national ranking,” says Belton Zeigler, managing partner of the firm.  “This year our national ranking moved up to a Tier 2.  We are pleased at the steady growth that Pope Flynn is experiencing, year by year, and thankful to have earned our clients’ trust.”
