Messner Reeves Attorneys Receive Multiple Best Lawyers in America Recognitions

For over 25 years, Messner Reeves LLP has served its clients and communities tirelessly. Not because we expected recognition but because we are dedicated to helping businesses with legal needs and guiding them to successful outcomes. Even still, we are proud to share that 20 Messner Reeves attorneys across five cities and four states were selected for recognition from Best Lawyers in America for 2023. The Best Lawyers® distinction is a significant indicator of Messner Reeves attorneys' caliber and expertise. Being listed in a Best Lawyers publication is a prestigious recognition earned this year by only the top 5.3 percent of current private practice attorneys in the United States. Annually, Best Lawyers recognizes approximately 131,300 attorneys across the globe. Since 1983, it has become a universally sought-after guide for outstanding and reliable legal representation worldwide. However, it should be noted that attorneys who receive this distinction aren’t asked or allowed to pay a fee for inclusion on the list.

Best Lawyers awards use exhaustive peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially rate their peers across 150 practice areas. This year there was a notable 17 percent increase in votes received for 2023 over last year. Best Lawyers considered over 12 million lawyer evaluations, including attorney submissions for those that were their adversaries in a courtroom, to select this year’s exclusive group of Best Lawyers honorees.

Current Recognized Messner Reeves Best Lawyers in America: Ones to Watch

Since its inception in 2020, Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch has expanded to include over 19,000 of the most exclusive upcoming legal talent in the U.S. The primary purpose of this distinguished recognition is to draw more attention to the growing number of attorneys who are new to the industry. These attorneys are already making names, careers, and reputations for themselves, and such an award is genuinely fitting for them. 

For 2023, Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch covers 190 metro areas, nearly 19,800 honorees, 79 legal practice areas, and represents 3,816 firms. While many of the formerly named attorneys in this category have received the Best Lawyers recognition, it’s crucial to note that being named as the former doesn’t guarantee a spot in the latter in years to come. However, newer attorneys can remain recognized in Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch for several years before hopefully earning recognition as a Best Lawyer.
