Don Marcari Selected to the Virginia Super Lawyers List for 2017

Personal injury attorney Donald W. Marcari has been named to the Virginia Super Lawyers list for 2017, an honor bestowed on only five percent of attorneys in the commonwealth. Mr. Marcari, founding partner of Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, was also named to the list in 2010 and 2011.

Super Lawyers is a rating service that recognizes lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a “high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.” Super Lawyers employs a rigorous four-step selection process:

  • Nomination — Lawyers cannot nominate themselves and may not campaign for selection. A lawyer can gain admission to the initial candidate pool through the Super Lawyers managing partner survey, a peer nomination, through third-party feedback, or by attracting attention from the Super Lawyers research team.
  • Independent research — The committee performs an evaluation based on 12 indicators of professional achievement, which include licensing and certification, verdicts and settlements, honors and awards, pro bono and community service, scholarly publications, and other aspects of professional practice.
  • Peer evaluation — Candidates with the highest total of points from the previous two steps serve on a blue-ribbon panel to evaluate other candidates within their primary practice area.
  • Final selection — Representatives of small, medium, and large firms are selected. Only five percent of attorneys are selected to the Super Lawyers list, while 2.5 percent of young attorneys are designated Rising Stars.

Don Marcari began his legal career in the United States Navy as a Judge Advocate General (JAG) Trial Team Attorney.  Among his many clients was a U.S. Marine stationed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, whose story was the basis for the Broadway play and movie A Few Good Men. Since 1985, Mr. Marcari has focused his practice on plaintiff personal injury law, civil litigation, products liability law, and medical malpractice, but he continues to defend select members of the military. He represented a service member client whose case was dramatized in the TV film The Paula Coughlin Story and told in the book The Mother of All Hooks: The Story of the U.S. Navy’s Tailhook Scandal. Mr. Marcari has tried more than 200 cases before juries, some against powerful corporate defendants such as Ford, Firestone, American Honda, and Home Depot, and several national trucking companies.

If you are seriously injured, you face an uphill battle to obtain compensation. But in Virginia, North Carolina or South Carolina, you can trust Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban to fight for your rights. Call us at (888) 351-1038 or contact us online to schedule a free consultation.
