Leading and Emerging Lawyers
Leading Lawyers is an award reserved for the most reputable, respected, and experienced lawyers. Law Bulletin Media compiles this list of outstanding lawyers by surveying other lawyers in the state, asking them which of their peers they would recommend to a family member or friend if they could not take a case within their area of law or geographic region. The award is very prestigious, as less than 5% of all lawyers licensed in each state have received the distinction of Leading Lawyer.
