About The “Best Law Firms” by Best Lawyers ® Rankings
Rankings by Best Law Firms® are some of the most trusted nationwide classifications available for law firms. Firms awarded in Best Law Firms ® are identified for their professional excellence with consistently positive feedback from clients and peers.

Best Law Firms® rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of clients and professional reference evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys, industry leader interviews and review of additional firmographic highlights provided by law firms as part of the formal research submission process.

The quantitative and qualitative data collected is combined into an overall Best Law Firms ® score for each firm. This data is then compared to other firms within the same metropolitan area and at the national level. Because firms are often separated by small differences in overall score, Best Law Firms ® uses a tier system rather than ranking law firms sequentially.

The first tier in each metropolitan area includes those firms that score within a certain percentage of the highest-scoring firms. We are proud to announce our firm ranked Nationally Tier 1 in Admiralty and Maritime Law and Metropolitan Tier 1 in Miami for Admiralty and Maritime Law, as well was Personal Injury Litigation. This is the highest-level achievement!
