Jim Reed, managing partner of the Ziff Law Firm in Elmira, has been selected by his peers to be featured in a national directory of top-rated attorneys for the fifth year in a row.
Jim, selected as a Best Lawyer in personal injury and medical malpractice law, was named to the 2016 Best Lawyers in America guide following a survey of lawyers in his geographical region and area of practice. Jim was first selected for the 2012 guide.
In September 2014, Jim was named the 2015 Plaintiffs’ Lawyer of the Year by the Best Lawyers in America guide among personal injury lawyers in the Southern New York Region, based on the recommendations of lawyers in Chemung, Steuben, Tompkins, Broome and Tioga, N.Y., counties.
Jim, who has been practicing law since 1986, has argued cases at every level in the New York State court system and has successfully managed many multi-million dollar cases. His practice handles serious personal injury and malpractice cases,
Jim is also the legal expert for WETM-TV in Elmira and appears in a segment called “Law Talk” at about 12:20 p.m. each Wednesday on WETM to discuss legal issues in the news.
Jim’s selection as a Best Lawyer shows that he has an excellent reputation in the Twin Tiers legal community, and a trial lawyer’s reputation means everything.
Every client should care about the reputation of their lawyer because it can influence the success or failure of their case. If you have a good reputation, as Jim does, opposing counsel and judges afford you courtesy and respect. They know that every case handled by a lawyer of Jim’s stature is a good case.
The American Lawyer, a magazine and website that reports news on the legal profession, describes the annual Best Lawyers guide as “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
