The Best Lawyers in America© was first published in 1983 to spotlight the nation’s best legal talent. Candidates go through a rigorous peer review process before being selected for inclusion in the publication.
Only a single lawyer in each practice area of a community is given the honor of “Lawyer of the Year.” The attorney must be nominated by a client or peer. After that, currently recognized Best Lawyers® will provide feedback on the candidate, paying particular attention to the quality and expertise demonstrated by each candidate’s work. Next the feedback is evaluated and the candidate must be confirmed in good standing with the local bar associations. Once this process is complete, winners are notified of their selection by Best Lawyers.
