Best Lawyers uses a peer review process to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal services from leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues with the same geographical and legal practice area. When analyzing the feedback about nominated lawyers, Best Lawyers asks voters, "If you were unable to take a case yourself, how likely would you be to refer it to this nominee?" Once the nominees are vetted for eligibility with the ethics committee of the state bar association, the finalists are notified, and the list of lawyers is released to the public.
