Cleveland, Waters and Bass, P.A., is proud to announce that five of its attorneys have been selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© 2017.


In addition, David K. Fries was named the Best Lawyers 2017 “Lawyer of the Year” in Business Organizations in Concord.


The Best Lawyers in America is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. A listing in The Best Lawyers in America is widely regarded by both clients and legal professionals as a significant honor, conferred on a lawyer by his or her peers. For more than three decades, these lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media, and the public, as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.


Best Lawyers in America’s lists of outstanding attorneys are compiled by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. If the votes for an attorney are positive enough for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America, that attorney must maintain those votes in subsequent polls to remain on the list for each edition. Lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate in or be included on Best Lawyers lists.
