At McDermott Stuart & Ward LLP, we believe our successes are your successes, and we invite you to join in celebrating our most recent one. Best Lawyers®, a worldwide peer review directory of the legal profession, once again recognized four of our attorneys in their 2023 edition of The Best Lawyers in America® for outstanding professional excellence. This designation is bestowed upon a single attorney in a specific practice area and location. For nearly 40 years, the Best Lawyers has been a go-to resource for finding top legal, peer-selected talent through millions of peer votes each year.

What is Best Lawyers?

In their quest to help those in need of legal services and to highlight excellence in the legal profession, Best Lawyers has recognized 144,625 attorneys in 76 countries and 150 practice areas through more than 13 million peer evaluations. In addition, they compile annual lists of notable attorneys through thousands of comprehensive and confidential peer-review surveys. If the votes for a lawyer deserve Best Lawyer’s recognition, that lawyer is required to maintain those votes in future polls to be listed in each annual edition. There are no fees associated with participating in or being recognized by Best Lawyers.

Best Lawyers believes the caliber of their voting pool directly impacts their survey quality, so only lawyers previously recognized by Best Lawyers were asked to review their constituents for the 2023 recognitions. They analyzed over 12.2 million evaluations for the 2023 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, recognizing only 5.3 percent of lawyers in the United States. Attorneys listed in Best Lawyers indeed are the exceptional elite in their industry. Congratulations to Josh Amos, Sean McDermott, Martin Stuart, and Thomas Ward

While we are honored to have such notable recognition, our focus is always on our clients. We don’t do what we do to receive awards or recognitions; we do it to provide the best legal assistance possible to our deserving clients. However, recognition, such as those from Best Lawyers, is only possible because of the work we do for our clients and the outcomes we obtain on their behalf.
