According to U.S. News, the “Best Law Firms” lists recognize the most elite firms across the nation, identified for their professional excellence with consistently positive feedback from clients and peers. To become eligible for a “Best Law Firms” ranking, at least one lawyer at the firm must be included in the latest edition of The Best Lawyers in America®, an exclusive award presented to only the top five percent of lawyers in the United States. Such recognition is a clear indicator of a firm’s excellence, quality of practice, and legal expertise.

To produce this year’s list, the Best Lawyers research team analyzed almost 124,000 client responses and 12.2 million evaluations of more than 115,000 lawyers from more than 22,000 firms across the country. Out of those evaluations, 2,071 firms earned a national recognition and 15,825 firms earned a metropolitan recognition.
