Edwards Kirby is pleased to announce that seven of our firm’s attorneys have been named to the 2022 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America®! This is one of the legal industry’s top honors, and an accomplishment several of our attorneys have earned numerous times before.

Published annually by Best Lawyers, The Best Lawyers in America list relies on a peer-review based methodology to nominate, review, and research potential honorees. Those who rank the highest among their peers are ultimately named to the final listing.
