Best Lawyers is the oldest and most highly-respected peer review guide
to the legal profession. Inclusion into its annual Best Lawyers in America
list is based entirely on peer-review. The methodology is designed to
capture the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional
abilities of their colleagues using a sophisticated survey process designed
to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal
services. "Lawyer of the Year" recognitions are also awarded
to individual attorneys with the highest overall peer-feedback, and only
one lawyer is recognized as the "Lawyer of the Year" for each
specialty and location.
