Being good at your job is considered a basic requirement here at Gerber & Holder Workers’ Compensation Attorneys. But being one of the best lawyers requires a level of dedication and expertise that surpasses all.
That’s why we are thrilled to announce that one of our very own co-founders and lead attorneys, Tom Holder, was recognized for his professional excellence in the 28th edition of The Best Lawyers in America©.
Specifically, Tom was honored for his successful work with claimants within workers’ compensation law.
The Best Lawyers
Best Lawyers is one of the oldest and most respected publications in the legal profession, reaching more than 17 million readers across the globe. The organization publishes lists of the best lawyers across 76 countries around the globe.
Attorneys who are selected as Best Lawyers get recognized based upon an exhaustive peer-review process. Within this process, tens of thousands of leading lawyers submit surveys to confidentially evaluate their peers, culminating in the recognition of Best Lawyer for a select few.
To be recognized as a Best Lawyer, a practicing lawyer must first be nominated by someone other than themselves. Their peers then provide feedback on the caliber of their work. Once the results are in, the feedback from voters is analyzed and reviewed. Candidates are then confirmed to be in good standing with their local bar association, and the results are announced.
Best Lawyers has provided this service, with its extensive review process, for over 30 years. The publication has served as an unbiased guide for legal excellence across 148 practice areas. Recognition in Best Lawyers is widely regarded by both clients and fellow attorneys.
Tom Holder was selected as a Best Lawyer for the 2022 publication of the magazine. This achievement showcases his diligence and commitment to those who have suffered from injuries at work and deserve workers’ compensation.
