The annual lawyer referral guide produced by Best Lawyers collects confidential peer-review surveys from top lawyers across the country.  Since lawyers cannot pay for inclusion or choose their listed practice area, the publication is seen as one of the most reliable and unbiased peer-review publications for lawyers, and inclusion is regarded as a singular honor.
