Attorneys named to The Best Lawyers in America were recognized by their peers in the legal industry for their professional excellence in 148 practice areas. 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 this new edition, which represents just 5% of lawyers in private practice in the U.S.
“In 1981, Best Lawyers was created to fill an industry void and serve as a valuable resource to those in need of a lawyer by highlighting top legal talent as selected by their peers. Four decades later, we are proud to expand our scope, while maintaining the same methodology, to recognize an additional demographic of talented and deserving lawyers,” says Phil Greer, CEO of Best Lawyers.
The process begins when attorneys are nominated for consideration. They are divided by geographic region and practice areas 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 recognized by Best Lawyers.
