“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 “Best Lawyers in America” 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. Then clients, lawyers, and marketing teams nominate additional 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.
