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© 2018. In addition, Timothy Britain was named the Best Lawyers 2018 Litigation-Real Estate “Lawyer of the Year” in Concord, New Hampshire. Only one lawyer is named “Lawyer of the Year” for each specific field and location.


Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation. 83,000 industry leading attorneys are eligible to vote (from around the world), and we have received almost 10 million evaluations on the legal abilities of other lawyers based on their specific practice areas around the world. For the 2018 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America, 7.4 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in more than 58,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
