We are pleased to announce that Pircher, Nichols & Meeks LLP has achieved the highest ranking for real estate law from U.S. News Media Group—publisher of U.S. News & World Report—on the Best Lawyers® 2018 “Best Law Firms” list. Pircher received a Tier 1 ranking both nationally and in the metropolitan areas of Los Angeles and Chicago.
