New this year is Benchmark Appellate, the definitive guide to America’s leading appellate litigation firms and attorneys. In this first annual edition, Christian & Small is highly recommended as one of Alabama’s Eleventh Circuit litigation firms. Deborah Alley Smith and Sharon D. Stuart are recognized as Eleventh Circuit Local Litigation Stars in Alabama.
One client surveyed by Benchmark remarked, “The firm has represented us for over 10 years. We chose to stay with them because of their reasonable fees and excellent results. As litigation counsel that engages hundreds of firms nationwide, I would include Christian & Small in the upper tier of firms I deal with.”
Benchmark is the only publication on the market to focus exclusively on litigation in the US. According to Benchmark, the guide’s results are the culmination of a six-month research period that allows its researchers to conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their clients. During these interviews, Benchmark examines recent casework handled by the firms and ask sources to offer their professional opinions on litigators practicing within their state or national practice areas.
