I am pleased to announce that U.S. News & World Reports, in conjunction with The Best Lawyers in America, has named my law firm, Pollock Begg Komar Glasser LLC, as one of the Best Law Firms 2010 for family law in Pittsburgh. Five Pittsburgh firms were named to the first tier, in which PBKG was included.

The list of first- and second-tier law firms in Pittsburgh is found here.

The methodology for the U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” involved surveying thousands of law firm clients; leading lawyers and law firm managers; partners and associates; and marketing officers and recruiting officers. Each were asked what factors they considered vital for clients hiring law firms, for lawyers choosing a firm to refer a legal matter to, and for lawyers seeking employment.

Based on that feedback, six key surveys instruments were created: A client survey was sent to 52,480 clients; a lawyer survey was sent to 43,900 lawyers, including every U.S. lawyer listed in Best Lawyers; surveys were sent to 2,314 marketing officers and 2,322 recruiting officers as well as to 8,597 firms without marketing- or recruiting-office contacts; and associate surveys were sent to 2,322 firm associates and 1,775 summer associates. The marketing-officer, recruiting-officer, associate, and summer-associate surveys included a total of 724 questions.
