Since it was first published in 1983, The Best Lawyers in America has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States.
Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch recognizes attorneys who are earlier in their careers for professional excellence in private practice.
“We are delighted to announce the 2023 recognitions for the United States and congratulate the worthy lawyers honored,” said Best Lawyers CEO Phillip Greer. “For more than 40 years our awards have garnered the respect of the industry as a reliable and unbiased resource to identify the top legal professionals, and we are proud to continue our globally respected purely peer-review methodology through these recognitions for lawyers at every level in their career.”
Lawyers on The Best Lawyers in America and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch lists are divided by practice area and geographic region. They are evaluated by their peers on the basis of professional expertise, and undergo an authentication process to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing.
For the 2023 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, Best Lawyers analyzed more than 12.2 million evaluations, resulting in the recognition of only 5.3% of lawyers in the United States.
For the 2023 edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch, Best Lawyers analyzed more than 1.6 million evaluations, resulting in less than 20,000 lawyers being selected by their peers to be included and commended for their outstanding legal talent.
