Donald W. Marcari Named to 2018 Virginia Super Lawyers List for Personal Injury
Donald W. Marcari, founding partner at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, has been selected to the 2018 Virginia Super Lawyers list for personal injury attorneys. Mr. Marcari, a former JAG trial lawyer whose first case was the inspiration for the movie A Few Good Men, has been practicing personal injury law in Virginia and North Carolina for 30 years and in the process has built a law firm with a national reputation. Mr. Marcari was first listed by Super Lawyers in 2010.
A service of Thomson Reuters, Super Lawyers is designed as an impartial and credible third-party rating system for lawyers in each state according to areas of practice. In April 2013, the U. S. Patent and Trademark Office awarded Super Lawyers a patent for its selection process (U.S. Pat. No. 8,412,564). The process consists of four distinct stages:
- Nomination — Attorneys cannot nominate themselves or campaign for consideration. Nominations result only through a managing partner survey, peer nomination, third-party feedback, and identification by Super Lawyers’ own research team.
- Independent research — Super Lawyers performs an evaluation of 12 indicators of professional achievement and peer recognition.
- Peer evaluation — Candidates with the highest scores on the first two steps are invited to serve on a Blue Ribbon Panel to evaluate leading candidates within discrete practice areas.
- Final selection — Only the top five percent of candidates in each state make the final list.
In addition to representing clients in personal injury and medical malpractice claims, Mr. Marcari manages mass tort cases, assists veterans with VA disability claims, and continues to defend service members mainly from the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. Always eager to assist underdog clients against powerful opponents, Mr. Marcari has handled cases against Ford, Firestone, American Honda, Home Depot and several national trucking companies. Recently, Mr. Marcari achieved a personal goal, authoring a suspense novel, Conduct Unbecoming, inspired by one of his many JAG court cases.
Mr. Marcari is pleased with the Super Lawyers recognition and looks forward to many more years of service to injured parties, who need an aggressive litigation attorney to fight for justice on their behalf.
