Named Among 2021 Best Law Firms by US News & World Report

In its first year, Athea Trial Lawyers is honored to have been ranked among the “Best Law Firms” by U.S. News & World Report  and Best Lawyers.  The firm is recognized with a Regional Tier 1 Firm ranking – the highest ranking a firm can receive – in the area of Personal Injury Litigation. Law firms included in the 2021 Best Law Firms list are recognized for professional excellence with consistently impressive ratings from clients and peers.  Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise as well as a reflection of the high level of respect a firm can earn among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and practice areas.

To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer recognized first in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top five percent of practicing attorneys in the U.S.

The rigorous evaluation process includes peer reviews from leading attorneys in their field as well as the collection of client and lawyer evaluations based on the following criteria: responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, integrity and civility, as well as whether they would refer a matter to the firm and/or consider the firm a worthy competitor.

In the spirit of Greek Mythology, Athea is the only warrior you need inside your Trojan horse 'gift' to the defense! When I brought my case to Athea, I assure you the Defendant thought the Plaintiff was handing it a gift, a young female solo attorney who did not have a big team and objectively was not as seasoned as our successful colleagues, that they would beat at war using their hefty resources. Athea brought in all the resources we needed in a creative and strategic manner to win the war for our client with the utmost grace and professionalism. I am forever grateful to Ms. Chang and Athea Trial Lawyers!
