The 2018 Elite Trial Lawyer Finalists

Below are the finalists for Elite Trial Lawyers who will be honored in Las Vegas on Friday, October 5, 2018.

Finalists received at least one significant plaintiffs win between January 1, 2017, and April 30, 2018, and possessed an impressive record of success within the past three to five years.

Finalists were selected among 300 submissions, and after thorough research, analysis, and vetting by editors and reporters at VerdictSearch, Law.com and The National Law Journal.

The finalists were published on Law.com and NLJ.com in July, and will also be published in the print issue of The National Law Journal in September.

We will also announce the winners in the print issue of The National Law Journal in December.
