According to the Best Lawyers website, The Best Lawyers in America list is determined solely by peer review. Best Lawyers takes nominations in a variety of legal practice areas. Lawyers who appeared in previous directories are also automatically nominated. Participating lawyers cast their votes to choose the winners. Representatives from Best Lawyers ask voting attorneys, “If you were unable to take a case yourself, how likely would you be to refer it to this nominee?” To finalize the winners, the peer evaluations and voting results are analyzed. The Best Lawyers in America list has been published annually since 1982.
