Best Lawyers teamed up with U.S. News & World Report three years ago to rank U.S. law firms. The U.S. News - Best Lawyers "Best Law Firms" rankings are based on an evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from attorneys in their field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. To be eligible for a ranking, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is included in Best Lawyers as part of the annual peer review assessment.

Best Lawyers is the oldest publication in the legal profession ranking lawyers based on evaluations by their professional peers. Only one lawyer in each practice area and community is honored annually as a "Lawyer of the Year," and this honor is reserved for those who receive high ratings by "earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism and integrity."
