Williams Hart continues to maintain their Tier 1 ranking for the Houston metro area, according to U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms.” The firm is ranked in the “Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Plaintiffs” practice area category.
The evaluation process for a Best Law Firms ranking combines a number of rigorous evaluation metrics, including peer evaluation, detailed firm information, and client reviews. As a part of the client review process, past clients are asked to review the firm in terms of their expertise, responsiveness to clients, and whether or not they would refer someone to that firm in the future.
Additionally, law firms are only eligible for a U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” ranking if one of the attorneys at the firm is listed in the most current edition of Best Lawyers.
Williams Hart has received two Tier 1 rankings in the 2015 Edition of U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms,” one national ranking and one for the Houston metro area.

Clients are asked to evaluate law firms on a variety of factors, including responsiveness, expertise, and whether or not they would refer someone to this firm in the future. Similarly, other law firms and attorneys were asked to evaluate law firms on these same terms, as well as whether or not they considered the firm to be a worthy competitor. Additionally, in order for a law firm to be eligible for “Best Law Firms,” at least one attorney at the firm must be included in the current edition of Best Lawyers.

A woman who suffered from a stroke after being prescribed Yasmin by her doctor recently won damages worth $14 million, Chicago Tribune reported on April 20.
Reports said a Cook County jury and the legal counsel of Mariola Zapalski concluded that she was wrongfully advised by her Chicago doctor to take Yasmin in 2007. Zapalski, then 37 years old, was entirely paralyzed on her left side by a stroke only days after taking Yasmin birth control pills. Zapalski was not given information about the harmful potential side effects of Yasmin when it was prescribed to her. The award is a relief to the couple, who have endured many hardships as a result of the doctor’s poor prescription. Zapalski’s husband Rafal also had to stop working to take care of his wife.
