Recognition was limited to law firms of 21 or more attorneys in which at least a third of its lawyers achieved the AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating, the highest rating available from Martindale-Hubbell. More than 80% of Paley Rothman’s 32 attorneys are currently rated AV Preeminent.

In addition to being named a Top Ranked Law Firm, Paley Rothman was recently selected as one of the Best Law Firms by U.S. News & World Report and several attorneys have been individually recognized in Maryland Super Lawyers and Chambers USA for 2012.

Paley Rothman, founded in 1972, provides legal counsel to corporate and individual clients in a wide range of practice areas. It maintains a business-orientation and handles tax, real estate, employment law, estate planning, litigation, employee benefits and a variety of other matters for businesses and professionals throughout the Washington, D.C. metro area and around the country.
