Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. A listing in Best Lawyers is widely regarded by both clients and legal professionals as a significant honor, conferred on a lawyer by his or her peers (Copyright 2016 by Woodward/White, Inc. of Aiken, SC). All included lawyers must first be nominated by their peers, and then voted for by a certain number of listed lawyers who take part in the survey.
