In this first step of our multi-phase selection process, legal professionals are invited to nominate the top attorneys in their area. The surveys are conducted by an independent market research firm in Harrisburg, FieldGoals.US.



Our formal nomination page is designed to accept nominations only from legal professionals within your area.

We perform a new round of balloting and review each year, so the list undergoes some degree of change from year to year. Being listed one year does not guarantee that you will be published the following year.

Yes! Please complete the data verification process. This verifies your current contact and professional information and ensures the accuracy of what we publish.

No. We maintain strict confidentiality over the balloting process.

Our research team evaluates candidates on 10 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.

If you completed your ballot online and provided us with your e-mail address, you will receive confirmation by e-mail. We are unable to confirm receipt of paper ballots.

Invitations to nominate (containing the access code) are sent to legal professionals. If you lost, misplaced or did not receive your invitation, click HERE to request an access code via e-mail.
