On many occasions I have had an opportunity to use Best Lawyers for co-counsel and client referral purposes in other jurisdictions and in other areas of the law, both for myself and for others in our 40-attorney boutique practice. Every one of these referrals has worked out well with competent counsel and service. Your publication has served us well for quite a while. Our experience with it exemplifies the quality of its content and of counsel listed. Thank you for a truly useful resource.
