SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 18, 2013 – Barg Coffin Lewis & Trapp, LLP again received a “Tier 1” ranking nationally and in the San Francisco metropolitan area in Best Lawyers’ 2014 “Best Law Firms” list published by U.S. News & World Report.

Barg Coffin was listed nationally for “Litigation – Environmental” and in the San Francisco metropolitan area for both “Environmental Law” and “Litigation – Environmental.”

Inclusion in the “Best Law Firms” listing is based on a rigorous peer-review survey and evaluation process that includes data collection and feedback from thousands of clients, lawyers and law firm representatives spanning a wide range of practice areas nationwide. 

In addition to honoring the firm collectively, Best Lawyers also recently selected four partners for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America®  2014 (Copyright 2013 by Woodward/White, Inc.). Practice areas for which they have been chosen are indicated.

Coffin was also named Best Lawyers’ 2014 “San Francisco ‘Lawyer of the Year’” in the category of Environmental Law. Barg Coffin lawyers have received this individual distinction four out of the last five years with Gilhuly being honored last year, Barg in 2012 and Coffin in 2010. 

About Best Lawyers (provided by Best Lawyers)
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
