Local attorneys honored as best in the business

Top Lawyers 2012

Launch slideshow »

Several hundred Southern Nevada attorneys will be recognized tonight as part of VEGAS INC’s annual “Top Lawyers” program.

Honorees were chosen in collaboration with Martindale-Hubbell, which for 140 years has ranked attorneys based on the opinions of their colleagues.

To create VEGAS INC's "Top Lawyers" list, Martindale-Hubbell tapped its database to identify Southern Nevada lawyers who have been rated highest by their peers. The ratings are based on the confidential opinions of lawyers and members of the judiciary who receive invitations from Martindale-Hubbell.

The Martindale-Hubbell Legal Network is powered by a database of more than 1 million lawyers and law firms in more than 160 countries. Thousands of people use it every day to find attorneys, confirm their credentials and select the firms best suited to fit their needs.

Tonight’s event will be held at the Chateau Nightclub at Paris Las Vegas. The attorneys being honored also were featured in a special "Top Lawyers" publication distributed with this week’s VEGAS INC.
