Baldwin Haspel Burke & Mayer received Tier 1 ranking in the areas of Elder Law, Non-Profit/Charities Law, Tax Law and Trusts & Estates Law. According to Best Lawyers®, “achieving a high ranking is a special distinction that signals a unique combination of excellence and breadth of expertise.”
The U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their relevant practice areas, and a review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. An unprecedented amount of data was collected and this combined data resulted in the “Best Law Firms” rankings.
