Inclusion in the 2012 edition of The Best Lawyers in America is considered a top honor as less than three percent of the nation’s lawyers are listed in the guide, which are chosen by their peers and organized by practice area.

The nationally recognized list, which as been published since 1983, is now published each year by Woodward/White, Inc. of Aiken, South Carolina.
Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 25,000 leading attorneys cast almost 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 in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
