Best Lawyers In America was first published in 1983. The listings in Best Lawyers are based on an annual peer-review survey. According to Best Lawyers itself, inclusion in the listing is considered "a singular honor" because of the rigorous and transparent methodology used and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed.
