This methodology ensures that peers recommend peers - indeed their own competitors. To maintain the quality and credibility of the survey, lawyers cannot nominate themselves or anyone at their law firm. The lawyers who receive the most nominations are pre-selected for membership. Next, the ethical standing of each of these selectees is verified with the state's lawyer registration or disciplinary board.
