At Davis Levin Livingston, we are passionate about helping wronged Hawaii residents secure compensation. Our dedicated representation has often resulted in record-breaking verdicts and settlements. Now, we are pleased to announce that our firm has received a total of 7 rankings in Hawaii by U.S. News – Best Lawyers® for the 12th Edition of “Best Law Firms.”

U.S. News – Best Lawyers® relies on peer review, client feedback, and information about a firm’s track record, accessibility, and level of expertise to determine “Best Law Firms” rankings. Moreover, the candidate pool solely comprises law firms with one or more attorneys chosen for The Best Lawyers in America©, an exclusive lawyer register by Best Lawyers®. Earning a ranking in “Best Law Firms” is, therefore, a significant honor.

The competition is cutthroat, with many firms scoring within a few points of one another. To solve this problem, U.S. News – Best Lawyers® places the highest-scoring candidates along a three-tiered ranking system for each region and legal practice area. Tier 1 showcases the firms that achieved the very highest scores during review. Tier 2 comes next, then Tier 3.
