All candidates are evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Each year, lawyers are invited to nominate the top attorneys they have personally observed in action. Researchers then evaluate candidates based on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Candidates are then grouped according to their primary practice areas and final selections are made by special review panels composed of leading lawyers in each state.
