What makes this directory so unique is that it’s a respected and unbiased peer-review publication based on 7.3 million exhaustive evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers around the country. Lawyers are not required, nor are they allowed, to pay a fee in order to be included. They are nominated and voted in by their peers. Because of this unique referral process, being selected to the Best Lawyers list is regarded within the legal profession as a source of honor and pride, a testament to exemplary work.
