Bluestein Attorneys again named to Best Law Firms top tier for Columbia

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Bluestein Attorneys has been named to the top tier for the Columbia area in two practice areas in the 2021 edition of “Best Law Firms,” a U.S. News – Best Lawyers® publication. This is the firm’s 11th year in the listing, which recognizes the top practices in the nation.

Here are the new Tier 1 rankings for Bluestein Attorneys in the metropolitan area:

• Personal Injury Litigation-Plaintiffs
• Workers' Compensation Law-Claimants

To be eligible for a ranking, law firms must have at least one lawyer included in The Best Lawyers in America® in the same year. In August, three Bluestein lawyers were named to the list for Columbia:

• Margaret Miles “Marti” Bluestein – Workers' Compensation Law-Claimants
• Clarke Newton – Personal Injury Litigation-Plaintiffs
• Allison Sullivan – Personal Injury Litigation-Plaintiffs; Workers' Compensation Law-Claimants

Best Lawyers in America, which thousands of lawyers and corporations use annually, is regarded as a definitive guide to the legal profession in the United States. Based on confidential evaluations by the top attorneys in the country, the guide is advertisement-free and no fee is required to be included. All attorneys in the publication are subject to peer review within both their practice areas and their cities.

Once a firm is eligible, clients and colleagues evaluate the whole firm on key factors including knowledge, responsiveness, integrity and cost effectiveness. Attorneys are also asked whether they consider the firm to be a worthy competitor. The data is then compiled to determine final rankings in Best Law Firms in America. For more information, see
