About the Best Lawyers® in Minnesota List

The Best Lawyers in America is an annual referral guide that has stood the test of time. Since 1983, it has proven to be a leading benchmark of the very best legal counsel in the U.S. More than 2,000 law firms and over half of the Fortune 1,000 companies utilize this guide.

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.

Minnesota Monthly has teamed up with Best Lawyers to provide a consistent and reliable resource for readers. In the following pages, we highlight the best lawyers listed in Minnesota, an exceptional group of attorneys who go above and beyond for their clients.
