From corporate law to criminal defense, congratulations to the 113 locals who made this year's list of Little Rock's Best Lawyers. Before you dive into the profiles linked below, learn more about our process:

How do you determine which lawyers make the list?
Best Lawyers is a two-component voting system: peer-review voting and voting by readers of Little Rock Soirée and our sister publication Arkansas Business. We rely on lawyers’ expertise to determine who deserves to be on the list and on our readers to tell us how their experiences with individual lawyers rank.

This year, we emailed local lawyers from our online directory, inviting them to vote via online ballot. We also solicited votes from readers through our e-newsletter, social media pages and websites. Our research editor then tallied the votes, and we examined the list to confirm Arkansas Bar status and practice specialty for each lawyer.

How do you pick the categories?
We included categories that would be helpful to both business and personal clients.

Do lawyers pay to be on the list?
No, a lawyer cannot pay to be on this list. After the editorial staff finalizes the list, it is given to our sales department, which invites lawyers to buy profiles. Those profiles are on the following pages and are paid advertising. Whether lawyers choose to advertise in the magazine has no bearing on this list.
