IJ attorneys have been distinguished with awards over the years proclaiming them “Super Lawyers,” “Outstanding Young Lawyers” and the like, but we have perhaps the best new superlative to add to that list: Institute for Justice Senior Attorney Dana Berliner has now been named among a select group of “Best Lawyers” by a publication of the same name.
Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. For a quarter century, the publication has helped lawyers and clients find legal counsel in unfamiliar jurisdictions or unfamiliar specialties. Best Lawyers compiles lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current edition of The Best Lawyers in America is based on more than two million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.
Chip Mellor is IJ’s president and general counsel.
