For the sixth consecutive year, Robert J. Binstock, founding partner of the Houston-based law firm of Reich & Binstock, has been named one of Houston’s Top Lawyers for the People by H Texas, “Houston’s Premiere Lifestyle Magazine.”
American Registry LLC seconded the honor by adding Binstock to its exclusive Registry for Business Excellence.
“This is indeed a special honor for me,” Binstock said. “Being named one of Houston’s Top Lawyers for the People reflects Reich & Binstock’s laudable track record of ensuring that justice is served for victims who have suffered a pharmaceutical injury.
“We are here to help people who may not be able to fight on their own in the oft-intricate judicial process, notably in regard to defective drug litigation that calls for attorneys with specialized experience and expertise. This award not only recognizes me, but it attests to the diligence and excellence of our wonderful staff. On behalf of our entire team, I am very proud to receive it.”
Binstock has represented hundreds of injured plaintiffs in mass and class actions focusing on medical device, product liability, toxic tort, and pharmaceutical litigation. Working in one of his specialties, Binstock is representing plaintiffs in pharmaceutical injury claims filed to hold accountable the makers of the dialysis product GranuFlo, the contraceptive Yaz, Transvaginal Mesh, and the antidepressant Zoloft.
Binstock has assumed a leadership role in benchmark pharmaceutical litigation, serving on three Court-Appointed Plaintiff's MDL Steering Committees involving Levaquin, Digitek and the Kugel Mesh Hernia Patch.
