Published since 1983, The Best Lawyers in America is widely regarded as the preeminent referral guide to the legal profession in the United States. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which thousands of the top attorneys throughout the country cast more than two million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their specialties, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion is considered a singular honor.

The Best Lawyers in America is published by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.
