Bergen’s Top Lawyers peer review survey is published annually by (201) Magazine.  In the survey, conducted by Professional Research Services, attorneys throughout Bergen County are contacted and asked who they would recommend within the country in given areas of law.  Via an online ballot, each attorney was allowed to recommend up to three colleagues in each given legal specialty; attorneys who received the highest number of votes in each specialty are listed.
