The Lanier Law Firm’s Rick Meadow Recognized Among Top Attorneys in New York in New York Super Lawyers

NEW YORK – New York trial attorney Richard D. “Rick” Meadow of The Lanier Law Firm has earned recognition among the state’s top personal injury attorneys in the New York Super Lawyers list published in The New York Times Magazine.

Mr. Meadow, who leads The Lanier Law Firm’s New York office, was selected to the 2009 New York Super Lawyers list based on his work in a variety of personal injury matters, including cases representing clients who have been harmed by pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices, asbestos, medical malpractice, defective products, construction defects, lead poisoning, motor vehicle crashes, and negligence of premises owners and municipalities.

“Rick is an indispensable member of our litigation team and an outstanding overall attorney,” says firm founder Mark Lanier. “He is a formidable courtroom talent who is extremely deserving of this recognition.”

Attorneys selected to the prestigious New York Super Lawyers list represent less than five percent of all lawyers practicing in New York. Honorees are singled out based on nominations from other attorneys, followed by a review of the nominations by a blue-ribbon panel of attorneys and independent research conducted by New York Super Lawyers staff.

The 2009 listing of the state’s top lawyers will be published in September in the New York-Metro edition of New York Super Lawyers magazine and the October 4, 2009, edition of The New York Times Magazine.

Mr. Meadow manages The Lanier Law Firm’s Pharmaceutical Litigation Group. He was part of the Lanier trial team that obtained multiple plaintiffs’ verdicts against Merck & Co. Inc. in litigation related to the controversial pain medication Vioxx. Two of his prior court victories have been recognized by The National Law Journal as among the largest in the nation in both 2002 and 2003.

With offices in Los Angeles, Houston and New York, The Lanier Law Firm is committed to addressing client concerns with effective and innovative solutions in courtrooms across the country. The firm is composed of outstanding trial attorneys with decades of experience handling cases involving pharmaceutical liability, asbestos exposure, intellectual property, business litigation, product liability, toxic exposure and maritime law.
