The U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. To be eligible for a ranking in a particular practice area and metro region, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is included in Best Lawyers in that particular practice area and metro.

Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for its scope of practice, understanding of business and needs, expertise, responsiveness, integrity, cost-effectiveness, civility and client reference.

For more than 30 years, the Best Lawyers in America list recognizes the top lawyers in each practice area and metropolitan region in the country.
