Lipcon, Margulies & Winkleman, P.A. Named to “Best Law Firms” by U.S. News & World Report for Fifth Consecutive Year


U.S. News & World Report, one of the leading law firm ranking agencies, has named Lipcon, Margulies & Winkleman, P.A. to “Best Law Firms” in Admiralty & Maritime Law.

This is our firm’s fifth consecutive year receiving this prestigious national ranking. No other admiralty and maritime law firm that represents cruise ship passengers and crew has received a similar level of recognition.

LM&W, P.A. is the only plaintiffs’ cruise law firm that is nationally-ranked in admiralty and maritime law, with four attorneys also named to Best Lawyers.

This recognition in Best Lawyers in America includes our founding partner, Charles R. Lipcon, being named “Lawyer of the Year” in Admiralty and Maritime Law in Miami for 2020.

About the U.S. News & World Report Rankings

Best Law Firm is an award granted by U.S. News and World Report. In naming a Best Law Firm for a particular category, U.S. News and World Report sends out evaluation forms to millions of attorneys and clients. These evaluation forms give peers and customers an opportunity to praise or criticize various aspects of the firm, from expertise to communicativeness to costs, and more.

Best Lawyers is an independent publication with a similar evaluation form system, though the attorney must first be nominated by their peers before they are evaluated (in confidential surveys). Best Lawyers selection is granted on the basis of peer evaluation — not client evaluation — so the recognition is focused on the high quality of the attorney work-product.
