Thirty Six From McLane Law Firm Included in Best Lawyers

McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton, Professional Association is proud to announce that 36 of its attorneys have been named to the 2014 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 current U.S edition, the guide’s 20th, is based on nearly 5 million detailed evaluations cast by nearly 50,000 leading attorneys on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their own and related practices.

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.”
