For the fourth year in a row, Diamond~Massong has been named a 2020 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. These evaluations were combined into an overall score for each firm.

To be eligible for a Tier One ranking, 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 individual designations as Best Lawyers in the “Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs ” category for 2020 as well.

Medicare Liability Set-Asides: Mischief in the Making?

In the May 2019 issue of Trial News, Maria Diamond outlines the genesis of set-asides in the Medicare Secondary Payer Act (MSP), which preclude Medicare from paying for any medical care that has been paid or can reasonably be expected to be paid under a workers’ compensation law or plan; an automobile or liability insurance policy or plan (including a self-insured); or no-fault insurance. A Medicare set-aside (MSA) is neither a legal creation nor a requirement, but rather the settlement industry’s brainchild for MSP compliance. In the article, Maria outlines the current state of affairs in liability cases and offers a checklist for handling settlements or recoveries.

“I had a medical negligence case where my bile duct was completely cut during gall bladder surgery. I have had several surgeries for corrections since then. Judy Massong was recommended to me by a friend, and it felt right to have an attorney with a medical background. I adore Judy; she is compassionate and caring and communicates well. I feel comfortable that she is a female, and I am so pleased with how she handled my case. She truly believes in what she’s doing, and she’s a great advocate for the victim.” Melody P.
