Hodgkinson Street Mepham, LLC is proud to announce that several of its attorneys have been selected by their peers in recognition of outstanding skills and professional excellence. Martha Hodgkinson was selected as “Construction Defense Lawyer of the Year” for The Best Lawyers in America 2017. This distinction is bestowed upon one attorney in each practice area in a designated geographic area. Last year, Jeff Street was selected as “Medical Malpractice Defense Lawyer of the Year” for The Best Lawyers in America 2016.
Additionally, several Hodgkinson Street Mepham members were recognized by their peers as “Super Lawyers.” Each year, Super Lawyers recognizes the top lawyers in Oregon via a selection process involving peer nomination, independent research, and peer evaluation. No more than 5% of the lawyers in the state are selected as Super Lawyers. At Hodgkinson Street Mepham, Jeff Street has been selected to Super Lawyers as a top rated medical malpractice defense attorney for each of the past 11 years (2006–2016). Martha Hodgkinson has been selected to Super Lawyers as a top rated real estate attorney for each of the past 10 years (2007–2016). Dave Mepham has been selected to Super Lawyers as a top rated medical malpractice defense attorney for each of the past six years (2011–2016). Finally, as an attorney with less than 10 years of experience, Abby Miller has been selected to Super Lawyers Rising Stars for the past two years (2015–2016).
Perhaps most notably, in 2016, Hodgkinson Street Mepham was once again recognized by U.S. News as one of the “Best Law Firms” in Oregon. The list is compiled annually based on a rigorous assessment including client and lawyer evaluations, reviews by leading attorneys in the field, and any additional information the firm provides in the submission process. To be considered, the firm must have a lawyer who has been included in the Best Lawyers guide.
The boutique firm of six attorneys has more than 100 years of combined litigation experience in the areas of medical malpractice, catastrophic personal injury defense, construction, and real estate litigation.
