Distinguished Recognition

Kohn, Kohn and Colapinto: Top Rated Whistleblower Law Firm

The whistleblower lawyers at Kohn, Kohn and Colapinto have won many of the most prestigious peer reviewed recognitions available to any law firm. The National Law Journal selected our whistleblower law firm as one of the top 50-elite plaintiff’s law firms in the entire United States. Kohn, Kohn and Colapinto was the only whistleblower law firm to be selected. Prior to this achievement, the National Law Journal designated our firm as one of a handful of “hot” plaintiff’s law firms in the country, and stated that we were the “go to” firm for whistleblowers. No other law firm that specializes in whistleblower protection or qui tam has obtained these two designations.

In addition, each of the partners of Kohn, Kohn and Colapinto, LLP have an AV Preeminent® rating from the Martindale-Hubbell® Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers.™ This rating is based on a peer review survey conducted by Martindale-Hubbell.

Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ reflect a combination of achieving a Very High General Ethical Standards rating and a Legal Ability numerical rating. Legal Ability ratings are based on performance in five key areas, rated on a scale of 1 to 5 (with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest).
