About Best Lawyers®
Best Lawyers® was established in 1981. It was founded by Gregory White Smith and Steven Naifeh, both Harvard Law graduates, who understood how important it was for people to be able to find competent legal help without having to rely on hearsay. The founding principle behind Best Lawyers® is that the Best Lawyers® can identify who, among them, stands out as the cream of the crop, and that the Best Lawyers® should be recognized for their hard work and leadership in the legal community.
The votes for Best Lawyers in America® are curated by comprehensive peer review surveys, completed by tens of thousands top lawyers in the country. These leading lawyers quietly and discretely evaluate their legal peers and use that evaluation to complete the surveys. It’s astonishing to note that only the top 5.3% of the Best Lawyers® in the country, across 150 practice areas, are recognized by Best Lawyers®. In this latest year, over 12 million evaluations were scrutinized. And, as testament to the objective nature of the reviews, it’s interesting that many survey submissions were evaluations of lawyers by those with whom they have sat on opposing sides in court. The Best Lawyers® surveys represent the gold standard in the industry, and this year, only 71,437 lawyers were recognized out of those 12 million submissions.
Best Lawyers® uses a highly sophisticated, conscientious, objective, rational and transparent process carefully designed to elicit the most meaningful and substantive evaluations via survey, of the quality of legal services offered by a lawyer. The process to be considered by Best Lawyers® is straightforward. First, a lawyer must be nominated by a person other than themselves. Next, peer review is conducted by the elite lawyers in the area of practice of the nominee. The peer review includes feedback on the caliber of work by the candidate. The results of the peer reviews are then collected and analyzed by the voters at Best Lawyers®. For candidates who are being considered, an eligibility check is conducted. Only lawyers in good standing with their local bar associations are qualified. Finally, the happy day arrives when firms are told of the results and the freshly recognized lawyers are publicly recognized.
