After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers is designating "Lawyer of the Year" in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community receives this designation. The lawyers being honored as "Lawyers of the Year" were selected because they received particularly high ratings from most of their peers. The selected lawyers have earned a high level of respect among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same specialties for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity. This publication is one of the oldest and most respected peer-review publications in the legal profession.
