More Sandberg Phoenix attorneys were selected for inclusion on the 2014 Best Lawyers in America list than any prior year, reflecting our commitment to growth and providing superior legal services.
The oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, Best Lawyers listings are widely regarded by both clients and legal professionals as a significant honor, conferred on a lawyer by his or her peers. For more than three decades, Best Lawyers lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media and the public, as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.
Each Best Lawyer honoree is selected following an exhaustive peer-review survey in which leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. If the votes for an attorney are positive enough for inclusion in Best Lawyers, that attorney must maintain those votes in subsequent polls to remain on the list for each edition. Lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate in or be included on Best Lawyers lists.
Best Lawyers peer-reviewed listings are recognized throughout the international legal community and lists are now published in almost 70 countries around the world. The Twentieth edition of The Best Lawyers In America 2014 includes 50,834 attorneys in 134 practice areas, covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and inclusion in this year’s publication is based on more than 4.9 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
