It’s awaited with baited breath and with law firm marketers’ pens poised to release the latest swag of attorneys who have made the “Best Lawyers” list in the seemingly age-old guide to top lawyers. The release for the latest edition and links to the attorneys you need to know are below.
UNITED STATES – August 25, 2014 – Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected guide to the legal profession, announced the 21st Edition of The Best Lawyers in America on August 18, 2014.
Attorneys named to The Best Lawyers in America were recognized by their peers in the legal industry for their professional excellence in 137 practice areas. In addition, we are pleased to recognize the 2015 “Lawyer of the Year” recipients. “Lawyer of the Year” honorees receive this award based on their extremely high overall feedback within a specific practice area and metropolitan region.
“Best Lawyers is the most reliable reference for quality legal representation,” said CEO Steven Naifeh. “Inclusion on this list indicates that an attorney is valued by his or her peers for professional success.”
The process begins when attorneys are nominated for consideration. They are divided by geographic region and practice area, and are evaluated by their peers on the basis of professional expertise. Those who receive high peer reviews undergo an authentication process to make sure they are currently practicing and in good standing. Only then can these top attorneys be included in Best Lawyers.
“Best Lawyers is devoted to recognizing excellence,” Naifeh said. “We’re proud to acknowledge the accomplishments of these exceptional legal professionals.”
