IT MAY NOT be today, it may not be tomorrow. But at some point, everyone needs a good lawyer in their corner. With that in mind we compiled a list of the most respected lawyers in over 50 areas of practice to help you find the best legal counsel that Seattle has to offer. We invited the peer-review experts at LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell—whose 140 year old database includes over 1 million lawyers from 160 countries—to identify local lawyers who have reached the highest levels of ethical standards and professional excellence.
No one paid to be on our list. Martindale-Hubbell invites lawyers and members of the judiciary to confidentially rate colleagues whose work they know well based on these main criteria: knowledge of the law, good judgment, analytical and communication skills, and experience. Our list includes only those practitioners in King County who have been judged by their peers to be “AV Preeminent”—the highest peer-review rating available.
