Best Lawyers, Spring 2017 Business Edition, published its second annual directory of “Women in the Law,” which included Lucy E. Tufts of Cunningham Bounds, LLC. Recognized in the category of Personal Injury Litigation, Ms. Tufts was the only woman in Mobile, Alabama to receive this distinction, and one of only five in Alabama to receive it. Lawyers chosen for this exclusive list were nominated and recommended by their peers.
According to the editors, Women in the Law Business Edition “is a go-to shortlist of exceptional women attorneys, vetted by their peers, inspiring their colleagues and students, and from coast to coast exemplifying excellence in their practice.”
A listing in Best Lawyers is widely regarded by both clients and legal professionals as a significant honor, conferred on a lawyer by his or her peers, and it is considered “one of the highest forms of recognition within the legal profession.” The lists are compiled by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. Lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate in, or be included on, the lists.
