The personal injury law firm of Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen is proud to announce that attorney Malcolm P. “Mic” McConnell has been named the 2019 “Lawyer of the Year” for Medical Malpractice Law – Plaintiffs in Richmond by Best Lawyers®. The honor is an indication of the high level of respect McConnell has earned among other leading lawyers in the Medical Malpractice community for his abilities, professionalism and integrity.
Best Lawyers began designating “Lawyer of the Year” in high-profile legal practice areas in 2009. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.” The winners are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments conducted with thousands of lawyers each year. McConnell is receiving this recognition for the third time, having previously been named “Lawyer of the Year” in the practice area of Medical Malpractice Plaintiffs Law in 2013 and 2016.
“It is humbling and gratifying to have the work you do on behalf of your clients and your partners recognized in Best Lawyers. To receive ‘Lawyer of the Year’ in the area of my chosen specialty – Medical Malpractice law – is all the more rewarding,” said Mic McConnell.
In addition to the “Lawyer of the Year” award, McConnell was also listed in the 2019 edition of Best Lawyers in America in the practice area of Medical Malpractice Law – Plaintiffs.
McConnell leads the Allen Law Firm’s medical malpractice litigation team and is one of Virginia’s most respected medical malpractice lawyers. He has litigated complex malpractice cases involving almost every medical specialty. In addition to Best Lawyers in America, McConnell has been listed in Virginia Super Lawyers and was noted as a “Top Medical Malpractice Lawyer” by Richmond Magazine. McConnell is also the co-author and sole editor of Medical Malpractice Law in Virginia, now in its fourth printing.
