Recognition by Best Lawyers is based entirely on peer review. Their methodology is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area.
Best Lawyers employs a sophisticated, conscientious, rational, and transparent survey process designed to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal services. Their belief has always been that the quality of a peer review survey is directly related to the quality of the voters.

The Florida Supreme Court has issued a per curiam decision, In re: Amendments to the Florida Evidence Code, SC19-107 (May 23,2019) (Justices Canady, Polston, Lawson, Lagoa, and Muñiz, concurring), adopting the 2013 amendments to 90.702, Fla. Stat., which codified the Daubert standard for admissibility of expert testimony. The majority includes two of the three recently-appointed Justices. In explaining its decision, the Court declined to readdress the correctness of the recent opinion in DeLisle v. Crane Co., 258 So. 3d 1221 (Fla. 2018), in which a majority of the Court (Justices Quince, Pariente, Lewis, and Labarga) had determined that the Frye test previously adopted by the Court was the proper standard and held the 2013 amendments to 90.702 to be unconstitutional, essentially in violation of the Court’s exclusive rule-making authority. Justices Quince, Pariente, and Lewis have since retired from the Court. In effect, the new In re: Amendments decision seems to reject the constitutional deficiency found in DeLisle and implements once again the Daubert test by adopting the 2013 amendments to 90.702 and 90.704 “effective immediately.” (Full opinion available HERE).
