About Best Lawyers
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers (Copyright 2013 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, SC) has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honour. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers "the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice."
