Since it was first published in 1983, The Best Lawyers in America has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Recognition by Best Lawyers® is based solely on confidential peer review. The rigorous methodology utilized for recognition is designed to capture the consensus of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of colleagues within the same country and legal practice area. Best Lawyers employs a sophisticated and transparent survey process that is tailored to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal services provided by attorneys. The Best Lawyers in America recognizes the top 5% of private practicing lawyers in the United States and is commonly used by consumers in need of legal services to identify the most qualified attorneys based on legal expertise, ethical standards, and professionalism.
Almost 108,000 industry leading lawyers are eligible to vote (from around the world), and submitted over 13 million evaluations on the legal abilities of other lawyers based on their specific practice areas around the world. For the 2021 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America, 9.4 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in more than 67,000 leading lawyers being included in that edition. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
Congratulations, Art, on this well-deserved honor!
