The esteemed and well-known publication of U.S. News & World Report unveiled its exclusive list of Best Law Firms for 2016, and, once again, the Tulsa family law firm of Fry & Elder found itself perched atop the list.
Already acclaimed and highly regarded, the Tulsa family law firm garnered the elite Metropolitan Tier 1 Status for Family Law in Tulsa to also mark the third consecutive year Fry & Elder has made the U.S News & World Report’s list of Best Law Firms. The list is compiled and generated through Best Lawyers®, which is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.
“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,” said Best Law Firms Coordinator Valerie Smith. “A tier one is the highest rankings a firm can have in the metro area rankings.”
To be eligible to make the exclusive list, a law firm must have at least one attorney who is included in Best Lawyers® in that specific practice area and metro location. Those lawyers make up the top 4 percent of all practicing attorneys. Robert G “Hap” Fry Jr. not only has made the list every year since 2011, he was selected by Best Lawyers® as its Lawyer of the Year for Family Law in Tulsa for 2016 to further signify that he might be the best Tulsa divorce lawyer.
Fry & Elder partner M. Shane Henry said landing on the U.S. News & World Report’s list of Best Law Firms for 2016 is an accolade that speaks volumes about the level of service the Tulsa law firm Fry & Elder provides to its clients.
“This is a big honor,” Henry said. “Not too many firms have the reputation of excellence that we have achieved over the years. It’s nice to see that our work in and out of the courtroom is being noticed and talked about.”
