Honors & Awards
Chambers, a renowned legal directory, assesses lawyers and law firms all over the world through extensive research and interviews.

Washingtonian Top Lawyers
Since its first list in 2018, the well-known legal media company Lawdragon has recognized TELG attorneys as some of the nation’s top 500 plaintiff’s employment lawyers. Six TELG principal attorneys are among the elite based on “the views of peers and competitors.”
