Miami trial lawyers Grossman Roth, are proud to announce the selection of Neal A. Roth as the 2011 Miami Area Medical Malpractice Lawyer of the Year, according to Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.
The Best Lawyers media group selects a single lawyer for the honor annually for each practice area in each community. Firms are chosen as the result of exhaustive peer-review surveys, which makes the award particularly significant. A Lawyer of the Year hasn’t just won cases—but the respect of his or her colleagues; partners and adversaries alike.
“In choosing Neal as Miami’s Medical Malpractice Lawyer of the Year, the legal community is recognizing one of its leading lights, a tireless trial lawyer who has gone to bat—and hit it out of the park—time and again for those who have been catastrophically injured by the negligence of others,” said Stuart Grossman, a partner and co-founder of Grossman Roth.
“For more than 30 years Neal has changed lives, helping those most in need find the recovery and the accountability they deserve. In the process, he has become one of Miami’s best known and most successful medical malpractice lawyers,” Grossman said.
Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting thousands of confidential peer-review surveys, in which leading lawyers across the country note the best of their colleagues, the lawyers they would go to for assistance or to whom they would refer cases. The lawyers honored as Lawyers of the Year have received particularly high ratings in these surveys, earning top respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
Over three decades, Neal Roth—also a co-founder of Grossman Roth—has litigated some of Florida’s toughest, most important medical malpractice and personal injury cases.
A recognized leader—and former president—of the prestigious Florida Justice Association, Roth has worked with the state’s lawmakers to ensure that Florida’s laws best protect Florida’s citizens. The Florida Supreme Court appointed him to two key commissions, one focusing on jury panels and the other on complex litigation. Roth has also been particularly active in ensuring that medical malpractice victims have the rights and the opportunities they need to receive just compensation for losses they never should have suffered.
Roth’s dedication and success have made him an invaluable, asset not just to his firm and clients, but to the community, the bar, and the future generations that will enjoy the rights Roth has worked so hard to both expand and maintain.
Says Steven Naifeh, president of Best Lawyers: “We continue to believe—as we have believed for more than 25 years—that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession. We would like to congratulate Neal A. Roth on being selected as the Miami Area Best Lawyers Medical Malpractice Lawyer of the Year for 2011.”
Roth’s partners and associates at Grossman Roth wholeheartedly second that.
