At the American Institute’s Personal Injury Division we recognize excellence. Very few Attorneys can display our “10 Best” or “10 Best Under 40” badge on their website or display the plaque in their office. Some States depending on size and population density may be broken up into City or Region to be more applicable to potential new clients who utilize this site when looking for an Attorney.

Many aspects of the Attorney and his/her career are considered including:

  • Must be formally nominated by the Institute, Client, and/or Peer
  • Must have an impeccable Client Rating rating
  • Must not have faced or been subject to any Attorney Grievance Committee discipline
  • Must be a member in Good Standing of their State Bar
  • Must have excellent Client/Peer Reviews
  • Possess Advanced Degrees
  • Awards received
  • Professional Associations and their activity in such Associations
  • Publications in their field
  • Speaking engagements in their field



STEP 1: The Attorney must be nominated by the Institute, Client, and/or Peer.

STEP 2:  Our review committee researches the Attorney for the above criteria narrowing the nominations down to ensure that all the above criteria is met or exceeded.

STEP 3:  The list of the “10 Best” nominations goes to the final selection process where the 10 Best Attorneys representing the Best of the Best are selected.

We ask that each Attorney/Firm member strive to continually improve in their craft, strive to achieve excellence in their practice and day to day interaction with their clients to ensure the highest degree of Client Satisfaction, work to resolve any issues that may arise with clients and seek an amicable solution, and to maintain good standing in their State Bar.

Recognizing excellence. Allowing clients to make wise decisions.
