Jones Foster Named a Tier 1 Best Law Firm by U.S. News–Best Lawyers® 2021

Jones Foster is pleased to announce that the Firm has been named a 2021 Best Law Firm by U.S. News-Best Lawyers® in West Palm Beach.

The annual report rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations. Surveys solicit information regarding a firm’s expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, and more. The tier-ranking is based upon the combined quantitative and qualitative data scores for each firm which are then compared to other firms in the same metropolitan area.

Earlier this year, half of Jones Foster’s attorneys were recognized among The Best Lawyers in America 2021 in their respective practice areas. Vice-Chair and Shareholder Scott G. Hawkins was named “Lawyer of the Year” West Palm Beach in the area of Real Estate Litigation, and Shareholder James C.
