30 Aug Eytan Law Founder, Iris Eytan, Named Among 2023 Best Lawyers in America
Eytan Law is proud to announce that founder Iris Eytan was selected by her peers among the 2023 Best Lawyers in America for Criminal Defense: General Practice. Since its inception, Best Lawyers has assisted those needing legal services by identifying the best-qualified lawyers to represent them. For nearly 40 years, The Best Lawyers in America has been considered the most credible guide to legal excellence in the United States, and inclusion is based on confidential peer review. Honoring only the top 5.3% of elite lawyers in the nation, recognition in the 29th edition of The Best Lawyers in America symbolizes excellence in the legal industry.
Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which tens of thousands of leading attorneys cast almost 5.5 million votes on the legal abilities, skills, and knowledge of peers in their practice areas. Because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered an exceptional honor.
