Best Law Firms by Region

Associates rate the reputations of peer firms in their own region. These rankings reveal the most prestigious law firms by region across the U.S.

  • Survey Methodology

    Each regional ranking is based on associates who actually work in that region. For example, an associate from the San Francisco office of a national firm was only allowed to vote in the Northern California category. This year's regional rankings include the following locations: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Miami, the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Mountain States, New York City, Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, Southern California, Texas and Washington, DC.
