Messner Reeves Receives Several 2023 U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firm” Rankings

Messner Reeves proudly announces several 2023 Best Law Firm recognitions by U.S. News – Best Lawyers®. Three of these honors went to our Colorado offices, two to our Las Vegas office, and three went to our Phoenix office.

While we are genuinely honored to receive these recognitions, our purpose is not to receive awards or accolades but to represent our clients in the best way possible to achieve the outcome they deserve, no matter their legal issues. Therefore, receiving high honors from nationally and internationally recognized and respected reference organizations are the natural result of our efforts for our clients.

What is Best Lawyers?

Best Lawyers is a publication recognizing “who’s who” among lawyers and law firms by location and practice area. It’s a highly relied-upon reference for prospective clients seeking legal help. Recognitions are awarded by a peer review process and cannot be purchased.

Now in its 13th edition for 2023, Best Lawyers Best Law Firms recognized 15,825 law firms with a ranking across 188 metropolitan areas and 127 legal practice areas. Tier 1 metropolitan rankings went to 9,787 law firms, and nationally, 571 law firms were honored with Tier 1 awards in 75 practice areas. 

The “Best Law Firms” recognition is an award system using qualitative and quantitative data obtained during submission. To be eligible for Best Law Firms recognition, a firm must have at least one attorney recognized in the current edition of Best Lawyers in a “Best Law Firms” ranked by practice or metro area. Several Messner Reeves attorneys have recently bestowed such a recognition, helping to pave the way for the firm’s Best Lawyers recognitions.

Eligible law firms are invited to participate in the submissions process annually through law firm surveys and client and professional reference submissions. Data from all sources is considered with overall firm feedback from the individual Best Lawyers ballots to reach a cumulative score. Scores are categorized into Tier 1, 2, and 3 rankings. All rankings reflect the highest-level feedback a law firm can receive, demonstrating the best in the U.S. legal industry.

Law firms with rankings are recognized for professional excellence and integrity with continuous impressive ratings from their peers and clients, revealing an exclusive blend of quality legal practice and scope of legal expertise. In addition, receiving a tier designation echoes the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients within their communities and the same practice areas.
