Farmer, Cline & Campbell Awarded Prestigious 2015 Litigator Award

Farmer, Cline & Campbell, PLLC, a trial law firm located in Charleston, Beckley, and Morgantown, West Virginia, was awarded the prestigious 2015 Litigator Award TM for extraordinary achievement within the fields of personal injury, wrongful death, automobile accident, motorcycle accident, and brain injury litigation. This marks the second year in a row that Farmer, Cline & Campbell has received the award.

The award ranks Farmer, Cline & Campbell among the Top 1% in these practice areas.

Justly standing as the nation's most coveted symbol of Litigation Achievement, this unrivaled annual honor recognizes trial lawyers or firms who have attained extraordinary litigation achievement within one or more of 72 pre-defined practice specialty categories.

Award Eligibility Requirements

Based strictly on verdict and/or settlement dollar achievement rather than peer popularity, the Litigator Awards TM are perhaps the most rigorous and openly judged trial law rating. Simply being nominated is to be set among the elite of the profession. Those awarded are generally considered among the finest trial lawyers in the nation.

To be eligible, nominees must prove achievement of litigation performance benchmarks that includes not less than:

  • One verified verdict or settlement of at least $1 million in any one practice specialty category within the preceding 5 year period prior to nomination, or
  • One verified verdict or settlement of at least $5 million in any one practice specialty category within the preceding 10 year period prior to nomination, or
  • One verified verdict or settlement of at least $10 million in any one practice specialty category within the preceding 20 year period prior to nomination.

Eligibility is a feat achieved by fewer than 1 percent of all lawyers, and truly a testament to each award recipient's remarkable performance relative to peers. Of the nearly 1.1 million lawyers considered, only a select few per state or DMA, achieve the distinction of being awarded annually in any given practice specialty.

Winning a Litigator Award TM is a powerful endorsement of superior litigation achievement that provides discerning clientele and referring professionals with a strong reason to trust their case with an award recipient. Moreover, it offers a testament to their remarkable performance relative to peers.
