Rockport, Maine lawyer Don Briggs has been selected by his peers for inclusion in the 2013 edition of The Best Lawyers in America® in the specialty of Personal Injury Litigation. For over three decades, Best Lawyers® has been regarded – by both the profession and the public – as the most credible and definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States.
Selection to Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive and rigorous peer-review survey comprised of more than 4 million confidential evaluations by the top attorneys in the country. Because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be included, being listed in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Their annual, advertisement-free publication has been described by the The American Lawyer as “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.

Best Lawyers lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media, and the public, as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.
