Each year, Best Lawyers, one of the most respected peer-review publications in the legal profession, compiles lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. In the U.S., Best Lawyers publishes an annual referral guide, The Best Lawyers in America, which includes 41,149 attorneys in 126 practice areas, covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia. After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers is now designating “Lawyers of the Year” in high-profile practice areas in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.” This is a very significant accomplishment, as the lawyers being honored as “Lawyers of the Year” have received particularly high ratings in the surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
