January 1, 2016

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® had become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation.  Over 79,000 leading attorneys globally are eligible to vote, and we have received more than 12 million votes to date on the legal abilities of other lawyers based on specific practice areas around the world.  For the 2016 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, 6.7 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in more than 55,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition.  Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.  Steve had been selected in the area of Land Use and Zoning Law, Greg has been selected in the area of Real Estate Law, Dale has been selected in the area of Construction Law, and Peter has been selected in the area of Bankruptcy & Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency & Reorganization Law.
