John Eddie Williams Named to Best Lawyers in America 2015
August 18, 2014
(Houston, Texas) — Williams Hart is proud to announce that John Eddie Williams has been named to The Best Lawyers in America® 2015 (Copyright 2014 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.).
Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive annual peer-review survey in which more than 41,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.9 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas.
Because of the rigorous and transparent methodology used by Best Lawyers, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
Selection and Peer Review Process Inclusion in Best Lawyers is based on peer review, as it has been for nearly 30 years, and the voting pool for existing categories consists of all lawyers who are currently listed. These listed lawyers are asked to vote on both current listees and new nominees in their specialties and metropolitan areas and/or states, as well as to nominate additional lawyers. Voting takes place either by phone or by electronic ballot. Each listed lawyer is asked “If you were unable to take a case yourself, how likely would you be to refer it to this nominee?” Nominees are given a 1 -5 rating, with room to leave additional comments. Voters are asked to vote only on lawyers whose work they know personally. Votes that are clearly aberrational or politically motivated are ignored. Once selections have been finalized, they are checked against state bar sanction lists to make sure that each lawyer is in good standing with his or her state bar.
