Tim Smart, Executive Editor of U.S. News & World Report, stated, “Law Firms are an integral part of our rankings and a natural accompaniment to the law school rankings.” A common question is, "How was this ranking determined?" As described on the U.S. News - Best Lawyers - Best Law Firms website, "The U.S. News - Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading 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." Corti, Aleksy & Castaneda has five workers' compensation lawyers who are listed in The Best Lawyers in America for 2013.
