Best Lawyers is one of the oldest legal ranking services worldwide. In order to be recognized by Best Lawyers, an attorney must be evaluated and rated by both their peers and clients. For the 2018 edition, 7.4 million votes were taken into account. This recognition is especially impressive for an attorney in a small firm like Rivkind and Margulies. “I credit keeping my firm small to my ability to get to really connect with each of my clients, giving them the best service possible,” said Mr. Rivkind.
Mr. Rivkind has been handling personal injury and wrongful death matters involving cruise ship injuries, boating accidents, crew member claims, and other maritime law cases for more than 30 years. He has spoken before Congress on cruise ship safety and security, and is also recognized as a Super Lawyer, a Lawyer of Distinction, and a Top Lawyer in Florida. In addition, Mr. Rivkind’s Best Lawyers recognition follows other distinguished awards he has received such as the Verdicts Hall of Fame Award for the highest jury verdict award in the area of Admiralty and Maritime cases.
