Continuing nearly ten years of recognition, YJB Partners Bill Jungbauer and Ron Barczak were again selected for inclusion in the prestigious publication The Best Lawyers in America® 2006 (Copyright 2005 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.). In 2006 YJB Partners Bob Dolan, Lou Jungbauer, Mike Weiner and Greg Yaeger joined them in that distinction. All six were listed in the Railroad Law section of the book, in recognition of their excellent work on behalf of railroad workers.
Yaeger & Jungbauer Barristers, PLC now has more lawyers listed in the Railroad Law section than any other single firm, including both plaintiffs and defense firms. This fact emphasizes YJB’s status as the preeminent FELA plaintiff’s firm in the country.
For over 75 years our firm has fought for the rights of injured rails. During that time, Yaeger & Jungbauer Barristers, PLC has become synonymous with FELA, because of our commitment, compassion, and unparalleled quality of service. Our attorneys have handled FELA claims in over thirty states, tirelessly traveling throughout America, and providing the best legal service available to injured railroad workers and their families. YJB is proud of this tradition and is honored by the distinction bestowed on these attorneys by their peers.
Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States. Inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor, because the list is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which 18,000 leading attorneys throughout the country cast more than a half million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their specialties, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed.
