Dear Readers,

Welcome to Top Verdicts New York 2013, a special section of the New York Law Journal.

The lawyers and law firms who are ranked in these listings represent the best of the best in 2013. Their zealous advocacy on behalf of their clients is inspiring and deserving of our respect. Many of them are names you have seen before but a number of them are new to these pages.

In addition to highlighting the Top 30 verdicts reported to Verdict Search in 2013 we also break down these listings by categories including Construction, Medical Malpractice, Premises Liability, Motor Vehicle and Workplace Safety.

The following pages represent the passion, determination and skillful expertise of your colleagues. The work of these advocates in 2012 was outstanding and we salute them.

If you do not see a case you worked on last year, we encourage you to begin reporting your cases to VerdictSearch. You can submit a case to VerdictSearch by telephone at 347.227.3236. For subscriptions to the VerdictSearch database of 175,000+ cases, call sales at 800.445.6823. VerdictSearch is second to none when it comes to verdict and settlement research and reporting. For over 40 years, VerdictSearch has been the nation’s trusted source for news and research, providing legal and insurance professionals with the most accurate, detailed case reports each week. You can find them online at www.verdictsearch.com.

If you cannot wait until April 2014 for more information on verdicts and settlements please remember that every Monday on page 5, the New York Law Journal runs a special Verdicts & Settlements section in the paper highlighting recently submitted important or newsworthy cases.

Finally, I would like to extend a special thanks to the New York Law Journal sales, marketing and design teams as well as our consultant on this project, Brian Corrigan, and his team. Their efforts enabled this fantastic supplement to come together despite tight deadlines and a lot of edits.

As always, if you have any thoughts on this program or any other we run here at the New York Law Journal please drop me a line. I can be reached at fmcmanus@alm.com.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Warm regards,
Farrell McManus
