Dallas, TX (PRWEB) November 05, 2012

Once again, the national mesothelioma law firm of Baron and Budd has been selected to the prestigious Legal 500 list of top U.S. law firms in the area of mass torts and class action litigation. Baron and Budd was one of just two law firms chosen for the top tier in that category. Baron and Budd mesothelioma law firm has been repeatedly named to the Legal 500 as one of the top two toxic tort firms in the U.S.

“I am honored that Baron and Budd has been selected to such a prestigious list,” said firm president and managing shareholder, Russell Budd. “Our lawyers work hard every day to protect the rights of people who have been harmed by negligence.”

The Legal 500 uses independent researchers to gather interviews from thousands of law firms in more than 90 countries across the globe to find the “best of the best” and provide third-party commentary on the firms' work based on objective feedback from clients, judges and other lawyers in similar practice areas. The directory describes its United States directory as “the guide to the preeminent firms in the world's strongest and most competitive legal market.”

Baron and Budd's 2012 directory listing commented on the firm's “strong reputation nationwide in toxic tort multi-district litigation.” Russell Budd, Scott Summy, Burton LeBlanc and Bruce Steckler were mentioned as “highly recommended” lawyers, with Russell Budd listed as a leading attorney.

Baron and Budd is a nationally recognized leader in the universe of plaintiffs' law firms. The firm has been selected eight times to the National Law Journal's distinguished Plaintiffs' “Hot List” as a prestigious U.S. law firm. Only around a dozen law firms in the country “that have done exemplary, cutting-edge work on the plaintiffs' side” are chosen for the list each year. In 2006, the firm was awarded the Trial Lawyer of the Year Award from the Public Justice Foundation for its work on two lawsuits that spanned 21 years and involved more than 1,500 plaintiffs affected by groundwater contamination in Tucson, Arizona.
