Valent Legal is honoured to receive the prestigious recognition as “Best Law Firm 2021” by Best Lawyers magazine. The honour is the latest in a series of awards for the firm. Just last year, the publication also recognized two of the firm’s lawyers – Mike Dull and Charles Ford – as two of the top lawyers in Canada.
How Best Lawyers Chooses Recognized Law Firms and What It Means
Recognition as a top law firm or lawyer by Best Lawyers means that lawyers across the country agree these professionals provide some of the highest calibre legal services in the nation.
The Best Lawyers rating system relies purely on peer reviews to select recognized lawyers and firms. Leading lawyers submit nominations for these awards based on individual lawyers’ outstanding contributions to specific practice areas, as well as exceptional firm-wide work in particular geographic areas.
Valent Legal’s Achievements
This award from Best Lawyers is the latest accolade that Valent Legal and the firm’s industry-leading lawyers have received. Individuals in Halifax and across Nova Scotia also selected Valent Legal for a Consumer Choice Award, based on the firm’s excellent work on personal injury cases. The firm also has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB), which is the highest possible rating given by the respected review organization.
These accolades demonstrate how committed the entire team at Valent Legal is to not only providing exceptional legal skills but also to serving clients and the entire community with compassion and care.
Valent Legal’s founder Mike Dull, along with litigation lawyers Chuck Ford, Lisandra Naranjo Hernandez, Phil Moreira, Tom Champion, and the rest of the firm’s entire legal team regularly commit their time and resources to help make Nova Scotia a better place for everyone.
In addition to these firm-wide honours, the lawyers of Valent Legal are also consistently recognized for their outstanding individual contributions.
Since 2014, Best Lawyers has honoured Charles “Chuck” Ford for his remarkable work in insurance law and personal injury litigation, as well as his passion for helping individual victims and their families. Most of his work comes through referrals by other lawyers and businesses, which shows how much Chuck is respected throughout the industry.
Similarly, Best Lawyers has recognized Mike Dull for his industry-leading work in class-action litigation, medical negligence, and personal injury litigation – and his stellar reputation among peers and clients throughout Canada.
Mike has also been named as one of the top personal injury lawyers in Halifax. Some of the other honours that this respected trial lawyer has received include recognition from Public Justice and the Lexpert Directory, as well as consistent referrals from peers and speaking invitations based on his leading skills in personal injury and class-action law.
These honours echo the glowing testimonials from Valent Legal’s clients, who praise how the firm’s caring and skilled lawyers are committed to doing everything in their power to help clients get on the road to recovery after tragic accidents.
Past clients have commended the ways that Valent Legal’s team not only helped them get the best possible results for their cases, but also treated them as a top priority, answered all of their questions, and gave them the support they needed in the midst of tragedy.
