Williams Montgomery & John has been recognized on U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers' 2018 “Best Law Firms” list.  Firms included in the 2018 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.

"U.S. News has decades of experience evaluating key institutions in society—from colleges to hospitals," says Tim Smart, executive editor at U.S. News. "Law firms perform a vital role in American life, and ranking them is a key extension of our overall mission to help individuals and companies alike make important life decisions."

The 2018 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 U.S. Over 13,000 attorneys provided more than 1,000,000 law firm assessments, and over 7,500 clients provided more than 65,000 evaluations.

"We have been ranking law firms for eight years," says Steven Naifeh, CEO and co-founder of Best Lawyers, "having ranked individual lawyers for almost 35. This year we reviewed 13,745 law firms across the United States – across 75 practice areas – and a total of 1,911 firms received a national law firm ranking. We continue to expand our reach even as we also work to simplify the process for the law firms that provide us with the information that we use to create the rankings. We are proud that the legal profession views our law firm rankings with such serious and widespread respect."
