Best Law Firms in Each U.S. 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, New York City, Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, Southern California, Texas and Washington, DC.
