Since its inception in 1983, The Best Lawyers in America® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because The Best Lawyers in America® is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 41,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.9 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 The Best Lawyers in America® is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called The Best Lawyers in America® “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
