® has become known to many as “the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.” Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 52,000 leading attorneys cast nearly 5.5 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
