Diamond~Massong Chosen as a 2018 Tier One Law Firm by U.S. News - Best Lawyers

November 1, 2017 -- Diamond~Massong has been designated as a 2018 Tier One Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs law firm in the Seattle metro area for the U.S. News-Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” list.

“Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes collecting client and lawyer evaluations, peer reviews from leading attorneys in their field, and reviews of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. All quantitative and qualitative data were combined into an overall “Best Law Firms” score for each firm.

To be eligible for a ranking in a particular practice area and metropolitan region, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is currently recognized by Best Lawyers in that particular practice area and metro region. Both Maria Diamond and Judy Massong have received this individual designation in the “Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs” category for 2018 as well.

Judy Massong and Maria Diamond Named to Best Lawyers in America 2018

Maria Diamond and Judy Massong of Diamond~Massong have been selected by their peers for inclusion in “The Best Lawyers in America 2018.” Both are listed in the category “Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs” in Seattle.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become one of the definitive guides to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 83,000 industry-leading attorneys cast nearly 10 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers within their practice area.

Because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

“We were in a horrific car accident near Seattle in 2004, and Kevin was in a coma with a traumatic brain injury for a month. Our brother-in-law in South Carolina recommended Maria. She met us at the hospital and was ready to take on our case. She was reassuring, honest, and straightforward. Her communication skills are great, and she is confident in what she is doing. We felt she gave 120 percent to our case, and we so appreciated that. We had such a good experience working with Maria.” Kristina and Kevin Roberts
