**Listed in Best Lawyers in America© for ten years or more


         Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence, firm reps said. Because Best Lawyers® is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers® is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel Magazine has called Best Lawyers® “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
