When you’re in a position of power, you have to be smart, responsible and in control at all times. You need the right moves, the best intentions and the know-how to deliver exactly what is needed at just the right moment.

We asked local lawyers to vote for the peers they think are worthy of recognition. This annual list of Top Attorneys highlights those who were chosen as the best in their fields.

To the clients they’ve helped, surely these honorees are super heroes. It comes with the job – and the power of an attorney.
