Plaintiffs' Hot List: Motley Rice Recognized for Success and "Cutting Edge" Work in Plaintiffs' Bar
Mt. Pleasant, SC - Motley Rice is proud to announce that it is one of 19 firms across the nation selected for The National Law Journal's 2012 Plaintiffs' Hot List.
"All of us at Motley Rice are very honored to be nationally recognized. We are fortunate to have the human resources of talented and committed attorneys and staff who work at this high level and believe their work for our clients does matter and will make a difference," said firm co-founder Joe Rice.
A testament to the scope and variety of the firm's work, The National Law Journal's Oct. 1, 2012, announcement highlighted Motley Rice as a firm that "has scored major wins representing the families of victims of the September 11, 2001, attacks; Gulf Coast businesses, workers and residents hurt by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill; and thousands of people allegedly hurt by a hernia repair patch."
"We've developed the idea that there are things we do because they're the right thing," Rice said in the announcement.
The National Law Journal evaluates the plaintiffs' bar annually by extensively researching firms in the United States that have done "exemplary, cutting-edge" plaintiffs work. This year, the publication identified firms that it believes have had significant achievements over the past three to five years and that have secured at least one major "win" between June 30, 2011, and July 1, 2012, in high-stakes bench and jury trials, as well as cases that could affect litigation strategy or the results of similar cases throughout the country.
