AIKEN, S.C., Jan. 17, 2019 -- U.S. News Lawyer Directory - powered by Best Lawyers® is pleased to announce its newest product feature, Lawyer Commendations. Commendations are professional recommendations that allow lawyers to interact directly with each other and recognize each other's work. These commendations will appear on an attorney's Lawyer Directory profile and will help connect the legal community.
Only attorneys recognized in the current edition of Best Lawyers will have the ability to provide commendations. Lawyer Commendations act as a valuable tool verifying an attorney's reputation and talent from those who know the attorney best.
"Confidential participation and feedback from attorneys recognized in Best Lawyers is paramount in developing our annual rankings. We are excited to provide a public platform for those recognized attorneys to recommend any lawyer in private practice," said Phil Greer, CEO of Best Lawyers.
U.S. News Lawyer Directory - powered by Best Lawyers is a free resource for those seeking legal representation in virtually any jurisdiction and area of practice within the United States. Inclusion in the Lawyer Directory is solely based on whether an attorney is currently working in private practice. A lawyer does not need to be ranked by U.S. News or Best Lawyers to appear on the site. Commendations have no impact on the Best Lawyers rankings or methodology process.
