BEAUMONT - The Ferguson Law Firm placed two verdicts within the Top 100 Verdicts of 2017 – no other law firm in the U.S. was able to top the firm’s showing.
The listing, just released by ALM (American Lawyer), LLC, represents a comprehensive list of the top 100 jury awards of 2017.
“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized, once again, for our results. The first thing to always keep in mind is that these honors represent a ‘job well done’ for our clients, and the client remains our focus,” said Paul "Chip" Ferguson, adding that it continues the firm's unmatched string of successes since it opened.
The two verdicts credited to the firm were the 17th largest verdict ($131,410,122.00) received by Ferguson, the law firm’s managing partner, and the 98th largest verdict ($18,460,279.00) obtained by firm ownership partner Jane S. Leger.
“Verdicts like this are the result of one thing: hard work by all involved,” Leger said. “At our law firm, everyone from the partners to the lawyers to the entire staff contributes to these outcomes. It is a shared recognition.”
This recognition comes as part of the Ferguson Law Firm’s record-breaking 2017.
“We were extremely blessed to have a most successful 2017,” Ferguson said. “These two verdicts are great examples but we were fortunate enough to have a lot of good results that were obtained by a lot of good lawyers. Those good lawyers had a lot of good people helping them. I am very proud for Jane and her result, and I am very proud of our law firm. The Ferguson Law Firm plans to continue achieving these results for our clients in 2018 and following.”
Ferguson says the firm remains dedicated to the representation of those who have been wronged. The law firm has continued its efforts on behalf of its clients against the largest corporations both in the U.S. and abroad.
The law firm remains true to its Southeast Texas roots by maintaining its offices in Beaumont.
