Firm and Members Recognized by Best Lawyers/U.S. News

For the second year, U.S. News and World Report teamed with Best Lawyers to create a Best Law Firms ranking/publication.  And for the second year, Katz Baskies LLC was one of a very small number of firms its size included as a Tier 1 (top level) firm. 

In their words: "The U.S.News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.  ... Lawyers voted on expertise, responsiveness, integrity, cost-effectiveness, whether they would refer a matter to a firm, and whether they consider a firm a worthy competitor. We asked this group to vote on law firms that have a preeminent national presence within specified legal practice area(s) they know well."

In addition to the firm recognition, again Tom Katz and Jeff Baskies were included in the annual Best Lawyers publication.  Best Lawyers is a very highly respected peer review guide/ranking of lawyers.  Inclusion in Best Lawyers is generally deemed prestigious.  There are a relatively small number of lawyers from Boca Raton listed, and an even smaller number of Tax and Trusts and Estates specialists included.
