Best Lawyers recognizes outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement in their fields. For 2018, three Mickes O’Toole attorneys have earned this distinction; Thomas A. Mickes in Education Law; Thomas J. O’Toole, Jr. in Real Estate Law and Vincent D. Reese in the area of Labor and Employment Law.

Best Lawyers employs a sophisticated, conscientious, rational, and transparent survey process designed to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal services. Their belief has always been that the quality of a peer review survey is directly related to the quality of the voters.
