Based solely on peer review, being selected by Best Lawyers® is a significant honor, regarded worldwide as the most trustworthy, unbiased source for legal referrals. The 2014 edition of the publication was developed by assessing nearly five million confidential peer evaluations, asking nominated attorneys the question: “On a scale of 1-5, if you were unable to take a case yourself, how likely would you be to refer it to this nominee?” The Best Lawyers® editorial team then reviewed the votes (and any additional comments) and verified that selected attorneys were in good standing with the ethics committee of their state bar association.
