CityView magazine explains:
Each year, Cityview calls upon the members of the Knoxville Bar Association to determine which attorneys in East Tennessee are the best in their respective fields. The one criterion we most want the participating attorneys to consider when casting their ballots is whom they would recommend to friends and family if a particular matter fell outside of their practice specialties. This year, we asked local attorneys to cast votes in 64 categories.
Tennessee does not allow attorneys to advertise that they specialize in certain areas of the law, but as a consumer, choosing an attorney with experience in the correct area is essential. To that end, we have compiled this listing to assist you should you ever need legal counsel in East Tennessee.
Winners in most categories were so close in total votes that we are listing them alphabetically. We feel confident that all of the attorneys listed would provide wonderful representation, but the results of this poll represent only one method of determining who are the best legal professionals in our area. We strongly advise you to use not only this information but to use other quality sources of information.
