Plattner Verderame, PC is proud to announce that our founding partners, Richard Plattner and Frank Verderame, have both been named to Best Lawyers in America® for 2020. Both partners are Arizona State Bar Board Certified Specialists in Injury and Wrongful Death, and both have been recognized for their work in plaintiffs’ personal injury litigation.
The Best Lawyers in America publication is released each year, recognizing lawyers in all practice areas across the country for their work. The nominations are submitted by colleagues, clients or employers and then vetted during a peer review process. Once vetted, the attorneys are confirmed as being in good standing with their local bar associations and submitted for recognition. The lawyers chosen for the awards each year are notified and then listed in an online publication and in a print publication. The lawyers are divided into practice areas and geographic location.
