The annual procedure for determining who qualifies for recognition in the Best Lawyers® roster relies on peer assessment. Lawyers are prohibited from nominating themselves, and attorneys may not purchase inclusion on the list. Although being featured in one year makes an attorney eligible for future consideration, it’s important to understand that inclusion is not guaranteed. Best Lawyers® depends on a combined assessment by distinguished legal professionals regarding the skill of their colleagues operating within the same legal specialization and geographical areas. Moreover, all qualified attorneys must uphold a favorable standing with the Bar Association.
