A listing in Best Lawyers is widely regarded by both clients and legal professionals as a significant honor, conferred on a lawyer by his or her peers. To be considered for the Best Lawyers list, an attorney must be nominated specifically for his or her practice group. Upon nomination, an attorney’s name will appear on a ballot for a specific practice area and geographical region. Lawyers listed in the current edition of Best Lawyers vote on nominated lawyers based on the question, “If you were unable to take a case yourself, how likely would you be to refer it to this nominee?” The Best Lawyers editorial staff reviews the votes before releasing the final list to lawyers.
