We are celebrating another of our team’s great accomplishments!
We are excited to announce more of our team’s amazing accomplishments. Notably, Durbin Larimore & Bialick received metropolitan tier 1 rankings in Oklahoma City in the practice areas of Commercial Litigation, Insurance Law, Personal Injury Litigation-Defendants, and Personal Injury Litigation-Plaintiffs in the 2018 edition of “Best Law Firms” in the U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers; six of the firm’s attorneys were named on the 2018 Best Lawyers list, and the firm’s managing partner, David Donchin, earned Lawyer of the Year in the area of Insurance Litigation.
Firms included in the 2018 "Best Law Firms" list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise. The 2018 Edition of "Best Law Firms" includes rankings in 74 national practice areas and 122 metropolitan-based practice areas.
Attorneys selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2018 edition of The Best Lawyers in America were Gerald Durbin – Insurance Law and Personal Injury Litigation-Plaintiffs and Defendants; James Larimore- Bet-the-Company Litigation, Commercial Litigation, and Construction Law; Mark Bialick – Personal Injury Litigation-Plaintiffs and Defendants; David Donchin – Personal Injury Litigation-Defendants, Insurance Law, and Insurance Litigation; Tim Martin – Personal Injury Litigation-Defendants; and David Kearney – Construction Litigation, ERISA Litigation, and Insurance Law.
Lawyers on The Best Lawyers in America list are divided by geographic region and practice areas. They are reviewed by their peers on the basis of professional expertise and undergo an authentication process to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing.
We are also very proud of David Donchin and his well-earned accomplishment in being named the 2018 “Lawyer of the Year” in Insurance Litigation in Oklahoma City.
Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the 2018 "Lawyer of the Year", making this accolade particularly significant. These lawyers are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer-review assessments.
Last year, Donchin earned “Lawyer of the Year” for Personal Injury Litigation-Defendants. Donchin previously was elected into the American College of Trial Lawyers, which is limited to the top one percent of a state’s total attorneys. Donchin has also been recognized in Oklahoma Magazine and Super Lawyers Magazine as one of the State's top 50 lawyers in 2010, 2011, 2013, and 2017, and recognized as one of the State's top 10 lawyers in 2014 and 2015.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence.
Best Lawyers has published their list for over three decades, earning the respect of the profession, the media, and the public as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals. Its first international list was published in 2006 and since then has grown to provide lists in over 75 countries.
All of these awards simply mean we do our best to serve every client well. If you are in need of legal services, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 405-235-9584. You can be confident some of the best attorneys around are working for you.
