About Best Lawyers®
As a purely peer-reviewed guide to legal talent, the 27th Edition of The Best Lawyers in America highlights the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues. Attorneys are first nominated to the list through online submissions and are then evaluated by peers within the same geographical region and legal practice area. Following further analysis of the feedback, and confirmation of the nominees’ good standing with their local bar associations, the results of the newly recognized Best Lawyers® list are published.
