Legal Eagles Surpass Description
Brilliant. Preeminent. Great. Exceptional. Those are just a few of the adjectives nominators used to describe their favorite lawyers in franchising, proving that attorneys who make the Legal Eagles list are superlative—and the people who praise them have really good vocabularies.
Then there was this description, which may be the highest compliment of all. This particular attorney, a client wrote, “has singlehandedly transformed my negative opinion of lawyers to one of relief.”
Nominations poured in for the 2013 roster of Franchise Times Legal Eagles, our annual list designed to identify the very best attorneys, as viewed by their clients and peers. Our editorial board pored over the 775 nominations, supplemented with our own research. This year, for the first time, we’ve included excerpts from some of the most frequently nominated lawyers, so everyone can read what kind of descriptions these standouts inspire.
In another first, this year we present the Legal Eagles Hall of Fame, featuring those 45 attorneys making their appearance on the list for the 10th year in a row. These individuals are not only lofty, but they also are good sports, as you’ll see in their answers to our off-the-wall survey. We’re sure you’ll agree, the 154 Legal Eagles of 2013 are insightful. Diligent. Succinct. Attentive.
