February 2015

Appleton law firm Herrling Clark Law Firm, Ltd. is pleased to announce that Senior Partner John D. Claypool has been named a Top 50 Lawyer for the State of Wisconsin. Claypool earned this accolade from the Super Lawyers rating service, which also named him a 2015 Wisconsin Super Lawyer.

Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis.

This year marks Claypool’s eighth Super Lawyers recognition since 2006. Impressively, he has been named a Top 50 Lawyer for the State of Wisconsin for five of those eight years. As a 2015 Super Lawyer, Claypool is among the top five percent of attorneys in Wisconsin.

Herrling Clark Law Firm President, Kevin Lonergan, believes Claypool’s prestigious accolade is the result of years of hard work and dedication to protecting the rights of injured parties.

“Only fifty lawyers in Wisconsin have the honor of being named as a Super Lawyer top 50 lawyer, and we as a firm are proud of John’s accomplishments, and the respect that he has earned in the legal community. This kind of honor is bestowed on only those who achieved many accomplishments throughout an entire career. Herrling Clark is proud to be able to say that John is one of our partners," says Lonergan.

Appleton personal injury lawyer John D. Claypool earned his J.D. from The University of Wisconsin-Madison after earning his B.A. from The University of Minnesota. He concentrates his legal practice on personal injury litigation. To date, Claypool has tried over 100 cases before juries, a professional accomplishment he finds especially meaningful given his ardent belief in the right to a trial by jury. Although Claypool is entirely comfortable in a courtroom, he also works diligently to settle claims on his clients’ behalf. Claypool has successfully handled and negotiated complex claims in excess of $3 million.

In addition to his accolades as a Super Lawyer, Claypool is a Top Rated Attorney on Avvo, maintaining a 10.0 rating for his work in personal injury litigation and as a mediator. Claypool is a member of the American Bar Association, the National Board of Trial Lawyers and the Civil Trial Counsel of Wisconsin.
