“The research and analysis needed to produce the book helps to build our attorneys’ knowledge in the field of real estate law and enhances our credibility, resulting in a significant advantage for the firm’s clients,” said Mr. Leones.
The U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field and review of additional information provided by law firms. Clients are asked to provide feedback on firm practice groups, addressing expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility and whether they would refer another client to the firm. Lawyers voted on a number of issues including whether they would refer a matter to a firm and whether they consider a firm a worthy competitor.
