Chadwell selected as 2011 Super Lawyer
SPRINGFIELD Crear & Chadwell, P.C., recently announced that shareholder James D. Chadwell, Esq., has been selected as a 2011 Massachusetts Super Lawyer.
Chadwell is the only Western Massachusetts defense attorney to have been chosen as a Super Lawyer based on his professional achievements in workers’ compensation, as well as a high level of peer recognition. Chadwell focuses 100 percent of his practice on representing insurers, self-insurers’ and employers in their workers’ compensation requests.
The objective of the Super Lawyers selection process is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource to assist attorneys and sophisticated consumers in the search for legal counsel.
In the Massachusetts Super Lawyers selection process, ballots are sent by Law & Politics to more than 31,000 Massachusetts attorneys, each of whom must have been in practice for five years or more. Independent research is then conducted on each of the nominees, followed by a panel review process. Only the top 5 percent of attorneys in each state are identified by Super Lawyers.
“I am honored to be recognized by my esteemed peers for the 2011 Super Lawyers,” Chadwell said. “This is the second year in a row to be designated a Super Lawyer and my efforts are certainly due to the great working relationships I have with my wonderful clients.”
Chadwell, a resident of Longmeadow, is well known throughout Massachusetts as an expert workers’ compensation attorney and was selected by Super Lawyers in 2005 as a Rising Star. He is a member of both the Hampden County and Massachusetts Bar Associations.
Chadwell has been a member of, or very active in, local community and charitable organizations, including the Affiliated Chambers of Commerce of Greater Springfield, Springfield Technical Community College Board of Trustees, Western Massachusetts March of Dimes Golf Tournament, and the Alzheimer’s Association.
