In September 2008, more than 5,000 ballots were mailed to state Bar members, asking them to vote for peers whom they deem to be Utah's best-of-the-best lawyers. Bar members were encouraged to vote for lawyers whose work they have observed firsthand to be above and beyond, and whose services they would recommend to others.
For this edition of Utah Legal Elite, lawyers were permitted to vote for up to 10 lawyers: five from within their firms, five from outside their firms. Self-voting was not allowed. Votes were then pared down by a variety of screening processes, including review by a blue ribbon panel of judges.
Utah Business received thousands of responses, and the resulting top vote-getters are alphabetized within the areas of specialty listed. Your peers have spoken and we are proud to present the Beehive States top attorneys in the 2009 Utah Legal Elite.
