Welcome to The New York Area’s Top Rated Lawyers, a new publication featuring legal talent to be found across the state. The attorneys featured in this publication and our companion online edition have all achieved the peer reviewed rating of AV Preeminent® by Martindale-Hubbell®, the company that has long set the standard for lawyer ratings. The AV Preeminent® rating is a significant accomplishment and a testament to the fact that a lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence. In addition to presenting profiles of many of these Top Rated attorneys, this publication features articles on current trends in the law as well as helpful tips on finding and working successfully with lawyers and law firms. We hope you will keep it handy as a valuable resource in finding top legal talent and to assist you in making more informed legal decisions.

This year, ALM, the publisher of this special section along with Martindale-Hubbell® will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the Red Cross for relief to the Tri State Area from the damages caused by Hurricane Sandy. We would like to thank our participating law firms and attorneys.

Also, please be sure to visit our online edition of The New York Area’s Top Rated Lawyers at to find a directory of all of The New York Area’s AV Preeminent® rated attorneys listed by their practice areas.
