Congratulations to Jack Tieder, Bob Fitzgerald, Larry Baker, Carter Reid, Ned Parrott, Vivian Katsantonis, Kathy Barnes, Shelly Ewald, Chris Brasco and Rob Niesley and they are honored among the best lawyers in America for 2017.

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. 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.

The lists of outstanding attorneys are compiled by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of 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 our lists.

Best Lawyers peer-reviewed listings are now published in almost 70 countries around the world, and our presence has grown substantially in the international legal community. The 23rd Edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2017) includes 54,905 attorneys in 140 practice areas, covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and inclusion in this year’s publication is based on more than 7.3 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.
