Advisory Board Member
Leading Lawyers
Leading Lawyers Advisory Board members are selected based upon their reputation and professional ethics in addition to their knowledge of the lawyers within their area(s) of law and their respective region of a state. You could argue that these lawyers are the "best of the best" as a result of their experience, lawyering skills, professional ethics, and the respect of their peers. Many of the Advisory Board members are just as busy out of the office and courtroom with community and professional involvement as they are at work. Leading Lawyers is grateful to these members for the assistance they lend to our effort identifying the top lawyers in each state. (In addition to their Advisory Board categories, members of the Advisory Board may also be in other Leading Lawyers categories.)
