Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has developed a reputation as the most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession and a definitive guide to legal excellence. Inclusion is based entirely on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation and the methodology is designed to capture the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues.
For the 2017 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America®, published by U.S. News & World Report, millions of votes were analyzed, which resulted in more than 55,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition. According to the Best Lawyers® website, “lawyers are not allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore, inclusion in is considered a singular honor. Achieving a place on the list reflects both the quality of an attorney’s law practice and a breadth of legal experience.”
