Best Lawyers® is the oldest and most respected peer-review organization and publication in the legal world currently in operation. Representing lawyers and practices around the world, the company puts together an annual directory showcasing the best attorneys and law firms to potential clients looking for a reliable and unbiased source of legal referrals. The directory is divided into three categories, one of which is "Lawyer of the Year."
The nominees for The Best Lawyers in America® "Lawyer of the Year" are chosen by either a client or a peer—one cannot nominate themselves. Lawyers are also not allowed to pay money to participate in or be recognized by the Best Lawyers® organization.
After the initial nomination, candidates undergo a review process that includes:
- A peer review completed by trusted members of the legal community
- Feedback collected from voters during a polling period
- A background check to confirm the nominee is in good standing with their local bar association
Details about the review process are completely transparent, ensuring that anyone who makes it on a Best Lawyers® list has been properly vetted and is a trustworthy legal professional in their field and/or region. To learn more about the selection process, visit their official website.
