Meet Westchester County’s Best Lawyers in 2022

From society to society and from generation to generation, there may be no professional who rouses more debate and ambivalence than the lawyer.

In America, the practice of law is uncommonly ubiquitous. Sooner or later in your life — whether it’s for marriage or divorce, purchasing or building a home, enforcing a contract, or complying with myriad rules and regulations — you’re going to need a lawyer. Business owners know that from the start to the end of a venture or project, they will need legal services. So once again this year, we partnered with BL Rankings, LLC, the longtime publishers of The Best Lawyers in America, to showcase the premier legal practitioners in Westchester. Out of the thousands of attorneys who practice locally, BL Rankings identified 117 lawyers in 58 different specialties, ranging from antitrust to trademark law. We have also included, once again, the “Ones to Watch,” a list of 48 up-and-coming attorneys in the county, arranged according to their specialties.

We hope you will find this guide to be a useful resource in the event you need legal assistance — as you undoubtedly will at some point in your business or personal life.

Methodology for Best Lawyers® and “Ones to Watch”

This list is excerpted from the 2022 editions of The Best Lawyers in America® and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in America, the pre-eminent referral guides to the legal profession in the United States. Published since 1983, Best Lawyers® lists attorneys in 148 specialties, representing all 50 states, who have been chosen through an exhaustive survey in which thousands of the nation’s top lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The 2022 edition of Best Lawyers is based on more than 13 million evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

The method used to compile Best Lawyers remains unchanged since the first edition was compiled 40 years ago. Lawyers are chosen for inclusion based solely on the vote of their peers. Listings cannot be bought, and no purchase is required to be included. In this regard, Best Lawyers remains the gold standard of reliability and integrity in lawyer ratings.

The nomination pool for the 2022 edition consisted of all lawyers whose names appeared in the previous edition of Best Lawyers, lawyers who were nominated since the previous survey, and new nominees solicited from listed attorneys. In general, lawyers were asked to vote only on nominees in their own specialty in their own jurisdiction. Lawyers in closely related specialties were asked to vote across specialties, as were lawyers in smaller jurisdictions. Where specialties are national or international in nature, lawyers were asked to vote nationally as well as locally. Voting lawyers were also given an opportunity to offer more detailed comments on nominees. Each year, half of the voting pool receives fax or email ballots; the other half is polled by phone.

Voting lawyers were provided this general guideline for determining if a nominee should be listed among “the best”: “If you had a close friend or relative who needed a real estate lawyer (for example), and you could not handle the case yourself, to whom would you refer them?” All votes and comments were solicited with a guarantee of confidentiality, a critical factor in the viability and validity of Best Lawyers’ surveys. To ensure the rigor of the selection process, lawyers were urged to use only their highest standards when voting and to evaluate each nominee based only on his or her individual merits. The additional comments were used to make more accurate comparisons between voting patterns and weight votes accordingly. Best Lawyers uses various methodological tools to identify and correct for anomalies in both the nomination and voting process.

Recognition in the Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in America is based entirely on peer review and employs the same methodology that has made Best Lawyers the gold standard for legal rankings worldwide. These awards are recognitions given to attorneys who are earlier in their careers for outstanding professional excellence in private practice in the United States. Our “Ones to Watch” recipients typically have been in practice for 5–9 years.

Ultimately, of course, a lawyer’s inclusion is based on the subjective judgments of his or her fellow attorneys. While it is true that the lists may at times disproportionately reward visibility or popularity, the breadth of the survey, the candor of the respondents, and the sophistication of the polling methodology largely correct for any biases.
