Best Lawyers is the “first and foremost resource” for legal talent in the world. Best Lawyers makes their selections based upon the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about their colleagues in their graphical area, and their professionalism and legal abilities. Lawyers are first nominated by another lawyer in their area and then peer reviewed. Once they are confirmed to be eligible, results are collected, and the list is released to the public. Attorney Goodall is excited and honored to be receiving such a highly regarded and well-known recognition.
