The Best Lawyers in America was started in 1983 by U.S. News® and has grown with its reputation. In 2020, 8.3 million ballots were analyzed by the Best Lawyers® team to determine the final selectees. The voting method is simple: Attorneys only give feedback for their peers in both location and practice area and must answer the question of whether they would refer a case to each. There is space given for additional comments if an attorney desires to leave them.
The Gilbert Law Group® and Attorney Gilbert have received numerous awards over the years. Aside from his 11 recognitions by The Best Lawyers in America, Attorney Gilbert has received multiple selections to Super Lawyers®; an American Citation of Excellence from the Association of Trial Lawyers; and multiple "Lawyer of the Year" accolades from Best Lawyers® as well. Attorney Gilbert is also a member of the exclusive, invitation-only Circle of Inner Advocates, a group of 100 American civil trial lawyers known for their excellence.
