U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers announced the “Best Law Firms” rankings for 2023

Childers, Schlueter & Smith law firm is pleased to announce we have been selected and recognized for inclusion into the Best Lawyers rankings as a Tier 1 metropolitan law firm in Atlanta in the areas of Plaintiff’s Product Liability Litigation and Plaintiff’s Personal Injury. Tier 1 is the highest and most esteemed level of accomplishment based on a variety of factors, including peer recognition by other lawyers and judges.

This marks the sixth year that Childers, Schlueter & Smith has received this esteemed recognition and honor.

A few of our attorneys were also recognized individually: Andy Childers, CSS Firm partner who  assisted in a $10 million dental malpractice verdict this year, was recognized for Personal Injury Litigation for plaintiffs and product liability litigation for plaintiffs. Richard Schlueter, our orthopedic medical device expert was recognized for personal injury litigation for plaintiffs. CSS Firm Partner, Brandon Smith, was recognized for personal injury and product liability litigation for plaintiffs. Attorney Neil Edwards, in single events was recognized in “Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch” for medical malpractice law for plaintiffs.

As always, CSS Firm is honored by our inclusion into the 2023 Best Law Firms ranking, but much of our success is a direct result of the dedicated CSS Team and our clients that entrust us to help protect their legal rights. We will continue to seek changes that will ultimately make the world a safer place for our families and community.

CSS Firm also regularly participates in philanthropy throughout the Atlanta area, assisting where ever needed. November 2021, our firm participated in the 7th Annual Injury Board Day of Action “Community Resource Project” initiative to create opportunities to build community resources by helping to support local restaurants effected by fall out from the Covid 19 pandemic.
