Taylor Porter is pleased to announce that 30 of the firm's attorneys are included in the Best Lawyers in America® 2019 – an annual list compiled since 1983 and universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence in which rankings are based on a peer-review survey in which more than 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas.
In addition to Taylor Porter's 30 Best Lawyers honorees, five of the firm's attorneys received Best Lawyers® “Lawyer of the Year” recognitions, which are awarded to individual attorneys with the highest overall peer feedback for a specific practice area and geographic location. Only one attorney is recognized as the “Lawyer of the Year” for each specialty and location.

The Best Lawyers® list of outstanding attorneys is compiled by conducting peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. Attorneys are separated by geographic region and practice areas. They are reviewed by their peers on the basis of professional expertise and must undergo an authentication process to confirm their current practice and good attorney standing.
