  3. Washingtonian Lifetime Achievement Awards

On August 26, 2022 Washingtonian Magazine released its first Lifetime Achievement Awards. Washingtonian calls this list the “Best of the Best” and their “Top Lawyers Hall of Fame.” We are proud to announce that Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, PC. has the distinction of having two lawyers who received this elite award. The award recognizes attorneys who have been recognized by Washingtonian Magazine as “Top Lawyers” for 10 of the last 15 years. Joseph Cammarata has been named a “Top Lawyer” for 25 years, first making the list in 1997, as one of the Top 50 Lawyers. Allan M. Siegel was first named a “Top Lawyer” in 2004. Since then, both of them have received this honor every year Washingtonian has done the survey. Partner Ira Sherman has also made the list every year since 2017.

The Washingtonian’s “Top Lawyers” list is put together through peer voting. They send surveys to hundreds of local lawyers asking them who they would trust of they needed a lawyer. The lawyers who were awarded Lifetime Achievement Awards were the lawyers who appeared on the lists year after year, making them, according to Washingtonian, the “best of the best among their peers” 

The firm and its partners have been recognized as leaders in their field and the legal community. The firm has produced four Presidents of the Trial Lawyers’ Association of Metropolitan DC. The law firm has been named a “Best Law Firm” by U.S. News & World Report in 2020, 2021 and 2022. They have also been leaders in brain injury litigation for over two decades. Joseph Cammarata and partner Ira Sherman co-founded The Brain Injury Association of DC. Mr. Cammarata currently serves as the President of that organization. Joseph Cammarata also serves as the Chair of the American Association for Justice’s Traumatic Brain Injury Litigation Group. Allan M. Siegel is the current Chair-Elect of the American Association for Justice’s Bus Litigation Group, and serves on the Executive Committee of the American Association for Justice’s Traumatic Brain Injury Litigation Group and Trucking Litigation Group.
