The 2023 edition of U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” recognizes the most elite firms across the nation, identified for their professional excellence with consistently positive feedback from clients and peers. To become eligible for a “Best Law Firms” ranking, at least one lawyer at the firm must be recognized in the latest edition of The Best Lawyers in America®, an exclusive award presented to only the top 5% of lawyers in the United States.

“The legal community views ‘Best Law Firms’ rankings as the top marker of excellence for the reason that our methodology is comprehensive, rigorous and historically proven,” says CEO of Best Lawyers Phillip Greer. “Our extensive process guarantees this designation is bestowed upon only the best legal practices.”

To produce the 13th edition, the Best Lawyers research team analyzed almost 124,000 client responses, 12.2 million evaluations of more than 115,000 lawyers from more than 22,000 firms and conducted hundreds of interviews with law firm leaders. This process resulted in 2,071 firms earning a national recognition, and 15,825 firms earning a metropolitan recognition. Of those, only 571 firms earned a national Tier 1 recognition and only 64 firms earned a “Law Firm of the Year” designation.
