Goel & Anderson, LLC has again been selected for inclusion in the 2018 edition of the “Best Law Firms” rankings issued by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers®. The firm has been awarded a Tier 2 ranking in the field of immigration law for the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Firms included in the 2018 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.
“U.S. News has decades of experience evaluating key institutions in society—from colleges to hospitals,” says Tim Smart, executive editor at U.S. News. “Law firms perform a vital role in American life, and ranking them is a key extension of our overall mission to helps individuals and companies alike make important life decisions.” The 2018 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the U.S. Over 13,000 attorneys provided more than 1,000,000 law firm assessments, and over 7,500 clients provided more than 65,000 evaluations. U.S. News-Best Lawyers began publishing rankings of Best Law Firms in 2010, and Goel & Anderson has been selected for the Best Law Firms list since 2011.
Vic Goel, Managing Partner of Goel & Anderson, noted “While the immigration of skilled workers is becoming more important in our globalized economy, the processes involved in the U.S. have become less predictable and managing immigration compliance has become more challenging. Now, more than ever, it’s important to work with a firm that understands your immigration challenges as an employer, values you as a client, and anticipates your needs. We are honored to again be recognized for our expertise and commitment to immigration law through Goel & Anderson’s inclusion in the annual Best Law Firms rankings.”
The mission of “Best Law Firms” from the start has been to help guide referring lawyers and clients–from the country’s largest companies needing corporate legal advice to individuals needing skilled guidance–on issues that have a “bet-the-company” implication (in the case of a corporation) or a potentially life-changing result (in the case of an individual).
