“Top Tier Lawyers” is a professional collection of our Nation’s top attorneys.
Membership into the organization is by invitation only and is offered exclusively to those individuals who exemplify superior qualifications and results. Our goal is to connect any and every type of person with the most qualified lawyer for their needs. Just as our members are guided by high ethical standards in practice, we strive to provide a valuable service by only including attorneys that are licensed, active, and at the pinnacle of their field.
We use various weighted metrics to pick our candidates in our research. We believe there is always room for improvement in any selection process so we constantly look for ways to refine it. We consider many important factors, including, but not limited to, peer, judge, and client reviews – published and unpublished litigation results & settlements. – and contributions to the legal and non-legal community. Each of these factors combine to paint a bigger, clearer picture of how qualified each attorney may be.
Taken individually, these factors have strengths and weaknesses in providing an accurate accounting of legal skill and acumen. This is why, unlike many others, we use them all.
While one of the better parameters in evaluating, these reviews from colleagues, judges or clients introduces potential bias.
Boasting “win” percentages, settlement amounts may no accurately reflect if an attorney got the most for his or her client.
Contributions to the legal community and society as a whole may seem to have little correlation to how effective an attorney is but studies suggest otherwise.
We use several other factors as well. There may be an unlimited amount of additional factors to best rate an individual.
