The voting and submissions period for the 2012 Lawdragon 500 Leading Lawyers in America closed on Sept. 5. Thanks to all of our visitors for voting this year. To provide updates for earlier submissions, please email Editor John Ryan at or

Note on Methodology: The leading lawyer guides are selected from a combination of editorial research by Lawdragon staff; submissions from law firms; and an online ballot that allows any visitor to our site to vote for and comment on their favorite lawyers. Our own editorial research is the most important factor in the selection process, but firm submissions and online voting are both extremely helpful.
