To compile the Top Lawyers list, DBusiness conducted a peer review survey of more than 18,000 attorneys in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, and Livingston counties. Participants were asked to nominate up to three leading attorneys practicing in the five-county area in each of 53 legal specialties.
