Lieff Cabraser Nashville Partner Mark Chalos Named “Lawyer of the Year” for Product Liability Litigation by Best Lawyers for US Southeast

Only one lawyer gets “Lawyer of the Year” recognition for each specialty and location

Best Lawyers has published its new lawyer and law firm ratings for 2021, and we are proud to highlight Lieff Cabraser Mark P. Chalos’ selection as “Lawyer of the Year” for Product Liability Litigation for the U.S. Southeast.

The oldest peer review publication in the legal profession, Best Lawyers strives to “capture the consensus opinion of leading lawyers” with its annual listing of the most highly regarded practitioners in the law. Further recognition is also awarded to “Lawyers of the Year,” individual lawyers with the highest overall peer-feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region; only one lawyer is recognized as the Lawyer of the Year for each specialty and location.

Best Lawyers’ choice of Mark as its Product Liability Law – Lawyer of the Year for the U.S. Southeast reflects Mark’s unceasing work on behalf of clients in cases like 3M Military Earplug deafness injuries, national opioids litigation (including work on behalf of multiple Tennessee cities and counties), and the Navistar truck emissions defects case that settled in January of 2020 for $135 million.

Mark’s newest cases involve allegations of fraudulent and dangerous marketing of child booster seats by companies like Graco and Evenflo, vehicle defects like spontaneously activating Fiat Chrysler headrests, and Ford coolant system and brake defects.
