New York, New York”September 29, 2011” Chaffin Luhana LLP, a national plaintiffs-only law firm, is pleased to announce the selection of partner Eric Chaffin as one of the prestigious New York Metro Super Lawyers of 2011. This is the second year in a row that Mr. Chaffin has received this honor, which names him as one of the top five percent of lawyers in the state. Partner Roopal Luhana was also named as a Super Lawyers Rising Star, an honor reserved to no more than two-and-a-half percent of lawyers in New York.
Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas. The organization uses a multi-phase rating process involving independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations to choose those attorneys who are best able to represent individuals. After examining the Super Lawyer selection process, the New Jersey Supreme Court reported that the “procedures are very sophisticated, comprehensive and complex.”
The Super Lawyers research staff looks for attorneys who have attained certain honors, then evaluates them on professional achievements such as verdicts and settlements, experience, special licenses and certifications, pro bono and community service, scholarly lectures and writing, representative clients, and more. The selection process for the Rising Stars is similar, though restricted to those candidates younger than 40 years old who have been in practice for 10 years or less. The final list of both Super Lawyers and Rising Stars is printed in the Super Lawyers magazine and in leading city and regional magazines across the country as a guide for those individuals seeking quality representation.
Chaffin Luhana LLP has a long and successful history of protecting the rights of those affected by the serious side effects of pharmaceutical drugs and medical products.

To date, Mr. Chaffin and Ms. Luhana along with co-counsel have been involved in recovering over $900 million for injured consumers. The firm has a distinguished track record of success and is highly committed to each case.
