Williams Montgomery & John has been recognized on U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers' 2016 “Best Law Firms” list.  Firms included in the 2016 list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.

“For more than 30 years, U.S. News has ranked a wide range of institutions,” says Tim Smart, Executive Editor of U.S. News & World Report. “Law firms are an integral part of our rankings and complement our law school rankings.”

The 2016 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the US. Over 21,000 attorneys provided almost 700,000 law firm assessments, and over 8,000 clients provided more than 47,000 evaluations.

“We have been ranking law firms for six years now,” says Steven Naifeh, CEO and Co-Founder of Best Lawyers. “We are proud that we have undertaken this challenging and important task so diligently and with such care that the legal profession has come to view our tens of thousands of rankings each year with widespread respect.”
