McAfee & Taft named to 2018 ‘Best Law Firms’ list by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers

November 1, 2017

For the eighth consecutive year, U.S News & World Report and Best Lawyers have named McAfee & Taft to its annual list of “Best Law Firms.” In total, the firm received 62 top-tier rankings across the state of Oklahoma – 48 in the Oklahoma City metropolitan market and 14 in the Tulsa market.

According to the publishers, receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for its abilities, its professionalism, and its integrity. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top four percent of practicing attorneys in the United States.
