McManis Faulkner Records Three “Tier One” Rankings on 2021 Best Law Firms List

McManis Faulkner has received three “Metropolitan Tier One Rankings” by the U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers®. The firm was selected as a Tier One firm in the categories of Bet-the-Company Litigation, Commercial Litigation, and Litigation – Intellectual Property in the San Jose metropolitan area.

“We are honored to be recognized in these Tier One categories, and we are grateful that our peers hold our firm in such high esteem. It is a tremendous vote of confidence in our attorneys, our trial prowess, and the strength of our practice offerings,” said James McManis, founding partner of McManis Faulkner.

McManis Faulkner was also honored in the categories of Litigation – Real Estate (Tier Two), Litigation – Trusts and Estates (Tier Two), and Criminal Defense – White Collar (Tier Three) in San Jose.

In addition to the overall firm rankings, McManis, Bill Faulkner, and Michael Reedy were recently selected for inclusion in Best Lawyers’ companion publication, The Best Lawyers in America 2021.

The “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a meticulous evaluation process that includes collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their fields, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. Achieving both “Tier One” rankings and other rankings signifies a quality law practice and breadth of legal experience and knowledge in the recognized areas.
