Dear Reader,

We are so excited to present the 2020 New York’s Top Rated Lawyers 2020. New York Magazine and The New York Law Journal has teamed up to bring you this special section with the goal of recognizing and celebrating the best of the legal profession.

For over 100 years, The New York Law Journal has provided daily updates on the news that matters most to the city’s legal community. And so we are excited to have this opportunity to share with you a little bit more about the key players in our industry who keep our great city moving forward.

A bit about what it means to be a top-rated lawyer: We teamed up with Martindale-Hubbell®, the gold standard in legal ratings, to leverage their peer-reviewed system embraced by the legal community. All of the lawyers listed in this section are AV Preeminent Attorneys® as well as Top-rated Attorneys the highest possible rating awarded.

We’ll be back next year with exciting new sections. If you would like more information on how to be included in these sections, please drop me a line.
