IADC member David C. Anderson, of Collins Einhorn Farrell PC in Southfield, Michigan, has been recognized by Best Lawyers as the 2016 Legal Malpractice Law – Defendants “Lawyer of the Year” in metro Detroit. Anderson is also one of eleven attorneys within the firm who have been listed in The Best Lawyers in America© 2016, recognized for his work in Professional Malpractice Law – Defendants.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has been regarded the definitive guide to legal excellence, and is cited as “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice” by Corporate Counsel magazine. Best Lawyers has since partnered with U.S. News®, the leading rankings publication in the U.S., to rank law firms in the United States. Because Best Lawyers is based on an extensive peer-review survey in which more than 9,000 leading attorneys cast almost 6.7 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored for their outstanding accomplishments as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant. These lawyers are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer-review assessments, including high marks in the areas of professionalism, talent, and integrity. This is the sixth consecutive year that attorneys at Collins Einhorn Farrell PC have received the prestigious “Lawyer of the Year” recognition.
For nearly two decades, Anderson has successfully defended a wide variety of professional liability claims, ranging from legal malpractice to claims against accountants, insurance agents, and real estate appraisers. He has also successfully defended numerous corporations against product liability claims, including wrongful death cases. Over those years, he has gained considerable jury trial and arbitration experience. Anderson has been recognized since 2013 for his defense work in Legal Malpractice Law and Professional Malpractice Law by Best Lawyers in America. He has also been honored yearly as a Michigan Super Lawyer® as well as a listed “Top Lawyer” by DBusiness® numerous times.
