About the Selection Process

The board advisors at LeadingLawyers.com conduct the selection process through by-mail surveys sent to all practicing lawyers in that state. They are asked to identify which of their peers they believe constitute the top lawyers within their specific region or area of law. As with all voting processes, the lawyers who receive the most votes, and are approved by the Advisory Board, are then presented with the award.
