Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. For a quarter century, it has helped lawyers and clients find legal counsel. Best Lawyers compiles lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers.
In the United States, Best Lawyers publishes an annual referral guide, the Best Lawyers in America, which includes 36,126 attorneys in 78 specialties, covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Because lawyers are not required or allow to pay a fee to be included, a listing in is widely regarded within the legal profession as a singular honor, conferred on a lawyer by his or her peers. For more than 25 years, Best Lawyers lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media, and the public, as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.
