About Best Lawyers in America

For more than two decades, Best Lawyers has been regarded-by both the legal profession and the public-as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States. Lawyers are chosen for inclusion based solely on a vote of their peers. Listings cannot be bought, and no purchase is required to be included. In this regard, Best Lawyers remains the gold standard of reliability and integrity in lawyer ratings. To ensure the continued rigor of the selection process, they urged lawyers to use only their highest standards when voting, and to evaluate each attorney based only on his or her individual merits.
