Best Lawyers has employed the same sophisticated, conscientious, rational and transparent methodology and survey process for more than 40 years. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore, recognition by Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. An award presented by Best Lawyers does not guarantee a desired result, nor does it guarantee an honored lawyer being more skilled than lawyers who are not included in the publication. Best Lawyers rankings shall only be used for the purpose of identifying a lawyer as having been recognized by Best Lawyers and not to imply an endorsement of any product or services.
