Pircher, Nichols & Meeks LLP (Pircher) has received the highest ranking from U.S. News – Best Lawyers® for the 12th Edition of “Best Law Firms.” With this honor, Pircher maintains its long-standing Tier 1 ranking in Real Estate Law both nationally and in the metropolitan area of Los Angeles. The firm has achieved this elite status every year for more than a decade, since U.S. News and Best Lawyers® began their collaboration to compile and report the nation’s best law practices in 2010.

“We’re grateful to our attorneys, clients and peers for helping us to maintain our Tier 1 status with U.S. News and Best Lawyers® for more than a decade,” said Bill Jackson, partner of Pircher and a member of the firm’s Executive Committee. “It is an honor to be recognized for Pircher’s commitment to excellence in real estate law as a part of these rankings, which are a true benchmark of professional achievement within our industry.” 

Additionally, seven of Pircher’s attorneys were recognized by Best Lawyers® in The Best Lawyers in America© 2022 for their individual professional pursuits. Four of the firm’s attorneys were also included in the second edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch, recognizing those who have shown outstanding professional excellence within private practice in the early years of their careers. More information on both of these programs can be found on Pircher’s website.
