Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer review publication in the legal profession.

About “Ones to Watch” & The Selection Process
“Best Lawyers” is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. In order to qualify for the “Best Lawyers in America” recognition the attorney must have been practicing in his/her specific practice area (i.e., personal injury) for 10+ years. This year “Best Lawyers” added the “Ones to Watch” award for attorneys who have been practicing for less than 10 years in specific practice area.
“Best Lawyers” compiles lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The Nomination and voting process for “Ones to Watch” is a five (5) step process including; nominations, peer review, analysis of feedback, eligibility check, and results released. This five-step process is necessary to ensure the quality of the attorneys listed in the publication.
The nomination process beings with all the lawyers who were listed in the previous year’s publication being automatically nominated. For “Ones to Watch” this is the inaugural edition, so only those nominated this year appeared. Then clients, lawyers, and marketing teams nominate lawyers. The ballots are created based on these nominations to specifically include only the lawyers nominated in the voting lawyer’s geographical area to ensure the peer reviews are accurate and distributed to lawyers currently listed so they may vote.
During the voting process the lawyers are asked to rate their peers. Nominees are given a 1-5 rating and the voters may leave additional comments. Once the votes are in the “Best Lawyers” staff tallies the votes and checks the selected lawyers against their State Bar Associations to ensure the lawyers are in good standing. Finally, listed lawyers are notified of their inclusion in “Ones to Watch” and the list is released to the public.
