Ratings and References Regarding Attorney James H. Logan (as of July, 2017)
- For each of my 50 years in practice, all in the private practice of law, to the best of my memory, I have been rated as an “AV” Preeminent (5.0 out of 5.0) attorney by the nationwide lawyer rating service, Martindale Hubbell, for highest Legal Ability, and highest ethics; the most recent rating can be confirmed by looking on the Internet: www.martindale.com, then by looking up “Peer Review Ratings” and by inserting name “James H. Logan” (caveat: the practice areas listed in Martindale Hubbell are incorrect: my practice areas are exclusively employment law, employment litigation, individual employment rights, non-competition agreements, executives’ and physicians’ contracts, representation of small businesses in employment disputes, etc.) The 5.0 AV Preeminent rating is the highest possible rating, and according to Martindale Hubbell, it “…is a significant rating accomplishment – a testament to the fact that lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence.” It measures “…performance in five key areas”: Legal Knowledge, Analytical Capabilities, Judgment, Communication Ability, and Legal Experience.
- I believe that for many years I have been rated as one of the “Best Lawyers” and one of the “Super Lawyers” in Pennsylvania in my major field of practice, employment law/employment litigation, which ratings are supposedly based on anonymous surveys conducted by independent entities, and supposedly awarded to only about 5% of attorneys in this big, important, industrial state. This can be confirmed by contacting these ratings entities: (a) Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters entity @ www.superlawyers.com; (b) Best Lawyers @ www.bestlawyers.com, go to Regional Publications, look for Pittsburgh, scroll to “Labor and Employment Law”. I also was selected as one of the area’s “Top Lawyers” in my field.
- I was one of three lawyers selected by the Federal Judicial Center in Washington, D.C., to be a part of a televised program regarding our federal district court’s mandatory Alternative Dispute Resolution pilot program; my understanding is that in March, 2011, this video was sent by satellite to 400+ federal court centers around the country, touting the great success of our district court’s visionary initiative.
- I have been invited frequently over my career to be a presenter at Continuing Legal Education programs for Pennsylvania attorneys, mostly through the Pennsylvania Bar Institute or the Allegheny County Bar Association; among such presentations, I was one of a handful of attorneys selected to make a televised presentation of a mock sexual harassment trial, presented to about 200 attorneys in Pittsburgh, and such program was broadcast or shown throughout the various county bar associations in Pennsylvania, the first time the Pennsylvania Bar Institute had ever produced such a program; that program was so successful, that several years later I was asked to participate in an age discrimination mock trial, the video of which was made available state-wide. Most recently, I made continuing legal education presentations to attorneys or was published in the ACBA’s Lawyers Journal, in February, March, May and November 2016.
- I have been selected by my attorney peers to serve as a mediator or early neutral evaluator in over 118 complex employment-related cases in federal district court.
