At ShounBach, we are proud to announce that six of our skilled Northern Virginia divorce attorneys have been selected for inclusion in 20th Edition of The Best Lawyers in America ® listing for the practice area of family law. This is the listing for the year 2014. The Best Lawyers in America ® is a highly respected published listing that honors lawyers in all 50 states and in the District of Columbia who receive top-tier ratings from other leading attorneys, according to Best Lawyers. The attorneys at our firm who have received this recognition include Robert Shoun, Albert M. Bonin, Susan M. Butler, Keenan R. Goldsby, Sonya L. Powell and Philip Schwartz.
Attorneys who are listed in The Best Lawyers in America ® are not allowed to pay to have their names included in the listing. The selection process involves lawyers who have previously been named in the publication rating the new candidates. This peer review is conducted through ballots that are customized to match the voters’ practice areas and geographic regions, according to The Best Lawyers in America ® methodology. The voters are asked how likely they would be to refer cases to the candidates, being asked to provide a rating of 1 to 5. The voters are also able to provide comments with their ratings. Once the ballots are cast, the Best Lawyers editorial team reviews the ratings and comments and identifies those with the highest scores. The team also does its due diligence to ensure that selected attorneys are not in poor standing with their state bar associations, according to the listing’s methodology.
Being named in The Best Lawyers in America ® is a noteworthy professional accomplishment. By being included in this list, Attorneys Bonin, Butler, Goldsby and Powell have proven that they are held in high regard by their professional peers. This is not the first time that members of this group have been honored through the Best Lawyers listing.
