March 3, 2011
The oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, Best Lawyers compiles lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive surveys in which thousands of lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The 2011 edition of the Best Lawyers annual referral guide, “The Best Lawyers in America,” is based on more than 3.1 million detailed peer evaluations.
“We are honored to have so many of our practitioners listed as Best Lawyers in the areas of employment law and labor law,” stated Managing Partner Deborah R. Willig, Esq.
“Willig, Williams & Davidson is proud of our commitment to excellence and each day, our attorneys carry out that commitment in providing outstanding service to our clients. It is gratifying to have their efforts recognized by their peers.”
Attorneys are neither required nor permitted to pay a fee to be included in “Best Lawyers.” Rather listings are based entirely upon asking previously listed and other prominent lawyers, “If you could not handle a case yourself, to whom would you refer it?” Voting lawyers rank nominees numerically and are permitted to add pluses, minuses and comments for precise voting. For this reason, a listing in “Best Lawyers” is largely regarded as a singular honor within the legal profession. The listings reach more than 16 million readers in dozens of city and regional publications throughout the U.S. In Philadelphia, Best Lawyers magazine is featured as a stand-alone publication inside The Philadelphia Inquirer, included live on Law.com and distributed to all subscribers of The Legal Intelligencer.
