WESTPORT, Conn., Sept. 5, 2023 — Edward Nusbaum, a Westport-based family law attorney, was recognized in The Best Lawyers in America® for 2024. He has been rated Best Lawyers in America for 30 consecutive years and ranks among the top five percent of private practice attorneys nationwide. Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence.
Using Best Lawyers’ Purely Peer Review research process, the 30th edition of The Best Lawyers in America recognizes approximately five percent of the lawyers in private practice in the United States. For more than 40 years, Best Lawyers has operated on the belief that the quality of a peer-review survey directly relates to the quality of voters. Through a sophisticated, conscientious, rational and transparent survey process, Best Lawyers has established itself as the oldest and most respected guide to the legal profession. During the voting period for the 2024 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, more than 13.7 million votes were analyzed in the U.S.
“This historic 30th edition of The Best Lawyers in America is a testament to lawyers’ and firms’ appreciation of the Best Lawyers steadfast methodology and historical significance on the legal industry,” said Best Lawyers CEO Phillip Greer. “Best Lawyers accolades are based purely on the review of other top lawyers practicing in the same metropolitan and practice areas. Those practicing against each other in mediation or arguing across the aisle in court are providing positive feedback on their peers’ skillset, knowledge and professionalism. These awards are a genuine vote of confidence in their fellow lawyers.”
Best Lawyers has played a pivotal role in aiding individuals seeking legal assistance by helping them pinpoint the most adept lawyers to represent their interests, even in remote jurisdictions or unfamiliar fields of law. When searching for a reputable and esteemed lawyer, a mark of recognition from Best Lawyers is a valued credential for clients regarding the esteem a lawyer has within their profession.
The process begins when lawyers are nominated for consideration. They are divided by geographic region and practice area, and are evaluated by their peers based on professional expertise. Those who receive high peer reviews undergo an additional verification process to make sure they are currently practicing and in good standing. Only then can these top lawyers be recognized by Best Lawyers. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore, recognition by Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
