The law firm of Paley Rothman's collective attorney resume includes legal degrees from some of the country’s top law schools and faculty positions at universities, law schools and continuing legal education programs. Many of our lawyers hold leadership positions with a variety of local and national legal, charitable and civic organizations. And a significant number are frequently asked to speak at professional meetings, business seminars or community gatherings, providing information and insights of interest to the attendees.

It is not surprising, therefore, that our attorneys’ experience and excellent record of results have earned both the individuals and the firm itself a myriad of awards, acknowledgments and honors. An impressive number of Paley Rothman lawyers are often included among those annually recognized as Super Lawyers in the state of Maryland. Many prominent publications have seen fit to include several of the firm's finest as "Best Lawyers" (Washingtonian Magazine), members of the "Legal Elite" (Washington SmartCEO), "Top Estate Lawyers" (Bethesda Magazine) and "Leadership in Law" honorees (The Daily Record). The organizations that each year identify the top practitioners in the legal profession have followed suit; "Best Lawyers in America", "Who's Who in American Law" and "Chambers U.S.A." are among those that have bestowed accolades to Paley Rothman attorneys.

Equally impressive is how the firm has been acknowledged for the quality of its work in recent years. Our Family Law and Real Estate practice groups were each selected in the 2011-12 U.S. News & World Report “Best Law Firms” rankings of national and Washington, D.C. area firms. Fortune Magazine's December 2011 "Investors Guide" published a list of the nation's top-ranked law firms that included Paley Rothman. The rankings were based on the LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings of 250,000 law firms nationwide. Of that total, less than 1,000 firms were selected, based on the percentage of their attorneys achieving an AV Preeminent rating, the highest level of professional excellence.
