We are excited to share that Attorney Mitchell A. Stone was named the Best Lawyers® for Criminal Defense: General Practice “Lawyer of the Year” in Jacksonville. Additionally, he is recognized in the organization’s 28th Edition of The Best Lawyers in America®.
We are incredibly proud that Mr. Stone has received this honor, as an attorney must go through a stringent and sophisticated peer-review process to be selected. Only one lawyer is chosen per practice area in a specific region.
To be recognized by Best Lawyers®, an attorney proceeds through the following steps:
- Nomination: An attorney must first be nominated. Anyone can submit a nomination, including clients, colleagues, and other references. However, a lawyer cannot nominate themselves.
- Peer review: Candidates are reviewed by colleagues currently recognized by Best Lawyers®. The surveys are confidential and designed to measure a nominee’s professional prowess.
- Analysis: Best Lawyers® analyzes the submitted peer-review surveys.
- Eligibility check: To qualify for recognition, candidates must be in good standing with their local bar association. Best Lawyers® ensures that all nominees meet this criterion.
Attorneys with the highest overall peer scores receive the Best Lawyers® “Lawyer of the Year” award for their practice area and region.
