Our Awards

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 Employment Law, Family Law, Real Estate and Estate Planning practice groups have each been selected in the U.S. News - Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings of national and Washington, D.C. area firms for the last several years.
