Thirty Seven From McLane Law Firm Included in Best Lawyers

McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton Professional Association is proud to announce that 37 of its attorneys have been named to the 2015 edition of Woodward/White’s The Best Lawyers in America®, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.
Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive annual peer-review survey. The 21st Edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2015) includes 52,488 attorneys in 137 practice areas, covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and inclusion in this year’s publication is based on more than 5.5 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.
Because of the rigorous and transparent methodology used by Best Lawyers, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel Magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
