To assemble rankings, the publishers of Law & Politics survey lawyers for nominations of the best attorneys age 40 and younger, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less, based on personal observations. A Law & Politics research team then reviews potential candidates’ credentials and assigns points based on specific criteria. Point totals from the survey and research process are combined for a final tally. No more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in the state are named to the list.
