Submission Process

Eligible recipients receive a packet including information about a firm’s eligibility and a law firm survey.  Clients are asked to provide feedback on firm practice groups, addressing expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost- effectiveness, civility and whether they would refer another client to the firm.

Lawyers cast votes and are asked to consider expertise, responsiveness, whether they would refer a matter to a firm and whether they consider a firm a worthy competitor.

Data is combined into an overall “Best Law Firms” score for each firm. Data is then compared to other firms within the same metropolitan area and the national level. A tier system then groups the firms accordingly.

One “Law Firm of the Year” is named in the nationally ranked practice areas.
