The “Bergen’s Top Lawyers” list is based on a peer-review survey conducted by Professional Research Services (PRS) based in Michigan and was open to all licensed attorneys in Bergen County. Thousands of attorneys throughout Bergen were contacted by PRS and asked whom they would recommend within the county in given areas of law. Via an online ballot, each attorney was allowed to recommend up to three colleagues in each legal specialty. Each nominee was carefully evaluated on the basis of the survey results, the legitimacy of their license and their current standing with the State Bar Association of New Jersey.
