Minneapolis-based Law & Politics, publishers of Super Lawyers magazines, announced that Maine personal injury attorney Don Briggs has been named to the 2010 edition of New England Super Lawyers. This is the fourth consecutive year Briggs has been named a Super Lawyer from Maine. Each year, only 5 percent of the lawyers in the state receive this honor.

Super Lawyers recognizes outstanding attorneys in more than 70 areas of practice using a rigorous, multiphase selection process that considers 15 separate indicators of peer recognition, professional achievement, and high ethical standards.

“In law school, if you finish in the top 10 percent of your class, you graduate with honors and it’s a big deal,” said Bill White, publisher of Super Lawyers and Law & Politics magazines. “But with Super Lawyers, we select only five percent of the entire profession. These lawyers represent the cream of the crop.”

Briggs has handled thousands of personal injury cases in his career. He specializes in helping Maine victims of car accidents, medical malpractice, and other personal injury negligence cases. He is a board certified Civil Trial Advocate, a Past President of the Maine Trial Lawyers Association and a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. He is the past editor of Maine Verdicts and has been recognized as a Fellow by the National College of Trial Advocacy. He is a member of the AAJ Professional Negligence Section and the AAJ Medical Negligence Information Exchange Group. Briggs is currently president of the Knox County Bar Association.
