Best Lawyers bases its listings on an exhaustive peer-review survey of 18,500 leading attorneys throughout the country who provided more than 1.5 million individual evaluations on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their specialties. Because listings are based on the votes of other lawyers and cannot be bought, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
