The list of Leading Lawyers is the result of contact with thousands of lawyers in a given state. In surveys mailed to all lawyers in that state, Leading Lawyers asks which of their peers they believe comprise the top lawyers within their respective region and/or area(s) of law. Only those lawyers who are most often recommended, and later approved by Leading Lawyers’ Advisory Board, are selected as Leading Lawyers. The total number of Leading Lawyers in a state is limited to less than 5 percent of all lawyers licensed to practice law in that state.
