Rankings by Third Parties
The following summarizes the procedures of select rankings found on the Wallace Morrison & Casteel Web site.
The Best Lawyers in America. First published in 1983 by Woodward/White, Inc., the list is developed by polling the lawyers in the previous edition, except for newly added specialties. Voting areas vary according to size and population but are designed to correspond to the relevant legal community – i.e., the community of lawyers who are most likely to know each other’s work. A different customized ballot is generated for each geographic area and, within each area, a different ballot for each specialty. The nominees listed on a ballot depend on both the size of the jurisdiction and the size of the specialty. See www.bestlawyers.com for more information.
Super Lawyers. Prepared by Law & Politics, the publication represents the top 5 percent of lawyers in the states surveyed. Nominating and voting is through ballots sent to all lawyers within the state or region being surveyed. Lawyers eligible to participate have been in practice for five years or more. See www.superlawyers.com for more information.
Chambers USA. Published by Chambers and Partners, the rankings are developed through interviews of clients and attorneys by a research staff and by information submitted by law firms. See www.chambersandpartners.com for more information.
Legal Elite. Publications in Georgia and North Carolina survey bar association members to select the attorneys to include on the designated Legal Elite lists. For more information see www.georgiatrend.com and www.businessnc.com.
