11/01/2011

1150blf-badge-2011-2012.jpgGoel & Anderson has been selected for inclusion in the 2011-2012 "Best Law Firms" rankings issued by U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers®. The firm has been awarded a Tier 2 ranking in the field of immigration law for the Washington, DC metropolitan area.  The annual "Best Law Firms" rankings provide a comprehensive view of the U.S. legal profession that is unprecedented both in the range of firms represented and in the range of qualitative and quantitative data used to develop the rankings. Achieving a high ranking is a special distinction that signals a unique combination of excellence and breadth of expertise.

Vic Goel, Managing Partner of Goel & Anderson, noted "In today's economic environment it is more important than ever to work with a firm that understands your immigration challenges, values you as a client, and anticipates your needs.  We are honored to be recognized for our expertise and commitment to immigration law through Goel & Anderson's inclusion in the annual Best Law Firms rankings."

The mission of "Best Law Firms" from the start has been to help guide referring lawyers and clients--from the country's largest companies needing corporate legal advice to individuals needing skilled guidance--on issues that have a "bet-the-company" implication (in the case of a corporation) or a potentially life-changing result (in the case of an individual).

"U.S News has more than two decades of experience in providing the public with the most accurate and in-depth rankings of a wide range of institutions, including our Best Law Schools rankings," says Tim Smart, Executive Editor of U.S. News & World Report. "Law firms are an integral part of our rankings and a natural accompaniment to the law schools rankings."

"Best Lawyers was very pleased with the reaction from the legal profession and from legal clients to the first edition of the "Best Law Firms" rankings," says Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers. "By combining hard data with peer reviews, and client assessments, we continue to believe that we are providing clients with the most thorough, accurate, and helpful rankings of law firms ever developed."
