They are reviewed by their peers on the basis of professional expertise, and undergo an authentication process to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing.

Best Lawyers in America Ones to Watch awards are recognitions given to attorneys who are early in their careers for outstanding professional excellence in private practice in the United States. These recipients typically have been in practice for 5-9 years and the methodology for determining these awards remains the same as it did when Best Lawyers was founded four decades ago: peer-review. Lawyers are the best resource to provide feedback on the caliber of work performed by their peers.
