If you are looking for the best attorney in Memphis, or the winningest lawyer in Shelby County, Tennessee, or the finest injury attorney in the Tipton County area, you will not find it.
That is because it is not ethical in Tennessee for an attorney to hold themselves out as the "Best attorney" while others may say so, like SuperLawyers or a Readers Choice poll, they cannot say they are the best lawyer.
But ratings are helpful.
