There are many law firms who hold themselves out as “specialists’ who will “fight for your rights,” but when you are deciding which law firm is best for you and your family, the gold standard is a lawyer’s selection by his or her peers for “Best Lawyers in America’ and “Super Lawyers”. Louis Grandelli has been named in “Best Lawyers in America” for the past eight years and “Super Lawyers” for the past 14 years. Leigh D. Eskenasi, the firm’s other partner, has been named in Super Lawyers for 3 years in a row after numerous years as a Rising Star as rated by Super Lawyers.
