We are proud to announce that The Best Lawyers in America© have included both of our partners in the 2024 edition. Our senior partner Tommy Siniard has received the distinction for 28 consecutive years. Joining his father for the first time in the rankings is partner Bart Siniard.
Tommy Siniard’s recognition in the 2024 edition continues the longest streak of any personal injury lawyer in north Alabama. Bart Siniard’s inclusion came in his first year of eligibility in his tenth year of legal practice. They make one of the few father-son pairs to be selected in the same year in the history of the prestigious organization.
What is The Best Lawyers in America©?
The Best Lawyers in America© was first published in 1983. Best Lawyers’ purpose is to recognize top legal talent through a meticulous and objective process. The organization makes it selections entirely through a peer-review process. According to its website:
Our process is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area.
The Best Lawyers in America© employs a survey method where other top attorneys evaluate their peers in regards to legal competence, trial skills, and professional reputation. The recognition cannot be purchased.

Tommy Siniard’s Best Lawyers Streak Continues
The Best Lawyers in America© has selected Tommy Siniard for inclusion every year since 1995. Now in his 28th straight year of being included, Tommy holds the longest streak of any personal injury lawyer in north Alabama. In addition, it is the fourth longest streak of any personal injury lawyer in the entire state of Alabama.
I am humbled to be recognized for the 28th year in a row. I’ve worked hard my entire career to establish a reputation as a fighter for injured people. I’m always honored to receive this recognition because it reminds me that my peers respect me and my reputation.
Tommy’s inclusion was for the practice areas of personal injury litigation, medical malpractice, and workers’ compensation. He has recovered in excess of $150,000,000 in compensation for his clients in those practice areas during his career.
Bart Siniard’s First Selection by Best Lawyers
The Best Lawyers in America© selected Bart Siniard for the first time in its 2024 edition. The organization only selects attorneys who have been in practice for at least ten years. Bart began practicing law in the year 2013, so his selection in this year’s edition was especially important because he received the honor in his first year of eligibility. Bart’s inclusion was for the practice areas of personal injury litigation and medical malpractice.
I am thrilled about this recognition. I’ve seen my father’s Best Lawyer plaques in his office since I was in elementary school. To hang one on my office wall gives me the greatest sense of professional satisfaction.
Most lawyers will tell you that a distinction from The Best Lawyers in America© is one of the highest honors a lawyer can receive. In fact, our lawyers always tell people to do their “homework” when searching for who to choose for legal representation. The most important part of that homework assignment is to check whether the lawyer has received this honor.
Our firm is excited to continue providing quality legal services to injured north Alabamians, now with two attorneys wearing this badge of distinction.
