Best Lawyers is the oldest and most esteemed peer-review publication in the legal field.
Recognition in Best Lawyers is universally respected by both clients and legal experts as a great honor, bestowed on an attorney by his or her peers. For over three decades, their publications have received the recognition of the legal profession, media outlets, and the public, as a reliable, impartial source of legal referrals anywhere.
The list of distinguished attorneys is selected by administering an exhaustive peer-review survey in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially assess their professional peers. If the votes for an attorney are decisive enough for recognition in Best Lawyers, that attorney must maintain those votes in succeeding polls to endure in each edition. Attorneys are not allowed to pay any compensation to participate in or be acknowledged by Best Lawyers.
