Best Lawyers®

Lists of outstanding lawyers are compiled by Best Lawyers® through peer review surveys in which lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The 28th edition of The Best Lawyers in America® (2022) includes more than 66,000 lawyers in 147 practice areas, covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and inclusion in this year’s publication is based on 10.8 million detailed evaluations on lawyers.

Lawyers of the Year

The “Lawyer of the Year” recognition is awarded to individual attorneys with the highest overall peer-feedback. Only one lawyer is recognized as the “Lawyer of the Year,” a designation given within each practice group by metropolitan area. Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among their peers for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.

Best Lawyers®

Best Lawyers® is based entirely on peer review and the methodology is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographic area and legal practice area. Lawyers are not able to nominate themselves and must be nominated by their peers.
