Pope Flynn, a law firm concentrating in public finance and governmental law, has received two Tier 1 metropolitan rankings in public finance — one for Charlotte, NC, and one for Columbia, SC — from The Best Lawyers in America© 2016.  In addition, Pope Flynn has received its third national ranking, a Tier 2, in Public Finance. Best Lawyers® collaborates with U.S. News & World Report to rank more than 12,000 U.S. law firms by practice area and collects data through “client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.”

To be eligible for a Best Law Firms® ranking, a firm also must have at least one individual lawyer included in the annual Best Lawyers peer-review ranking. Pope Flynn has three such attorneys recognized by Best Lawyers in the area of public finance law: Margaret Pope, who has been listed in Best Lawyers for 13 years; Joe Lucas, who has been listed in Best Lawyers since 2005; and Matt Davis, who has been listed for 2016. The Best Lawyers lists are compiled through “conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers.”

“We are always thankful for the acknowledgement of our peers in the practice of public finance,” says Joe Lucas, a managing member of the firm.  “But we take the most satisfaction from the success of our clients. Every day we strive to give our clients the best expertise and service we can in the development of secure, economical public finance options.”
