All companies included in this ranking are required to have seen a growth in revenue over a three-year period.To be recognized by the “Inc. 5000”, Lawyers of Distinction, founded in 2014, has seen incredible growth year-over-year and that forward momentum will carry us into 2021 and beyond. In 2020 we announced unveiled our newest member program which provides free, unlimited CLE that is valid in all 50 states. This new benefit to our members, coupled with our already robust and extensive offering of membership benefits, has allowed our organization to provide a stellar marketing experience to our membership base. We will continue to acquire new members who represent the finest practitioners of law in the United States and abroad.As a membership organization, Lawyers of Distinction prides itself in remaining an exclusive opportunity for attorneys who meet our strict membership guidelines. Not merely focused on profit, our organization uses a patented, internal algorithm to ensure that only those attorneys who meet stringent criteria are accepted. The algorithm analyzes work, experience and abilities based upon the twelve independent criteria as described below. The algorithm then generates a numerical score of 1 to 5 for each of the factors meant to recognize the applicant’s achievements and peer recognition. The scores from each category are factored, with the most objective criteria such as educational background, years of experience and AVVO and Google reviews given greater weight. The numbers are then totaled and averaged for a cumulative objective score. The criteria the algorithm takes into account are: case results, honors/awards, Google reviews, AVVO reviews, legal experience, educational background, verdicts/settlements, special certifications, representative client base, professional activities, pro bono work, and publications and lectures.

We at Lawyers of Distinction pride ourselves in our position at the forefront of the legal marketing community and one of the ways we maintain that position is by highlighting our members and their achievements. All members are announced via our widely followed social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) when their membership has been confirmed. This is done via highly personalized, individual posts which are shareable across all platforms. All members also receive a search-engine optimized profile in our member directory. These profiles are highly customizable and feature an attorney’s headshot, biography, website and social media links, along with a sampling of curated reviews from Google, AVVO, and Yelp.

We are honored and beyond excited to be included in the “Inc. 5000” list and we will continue to highlight not only our organization’s successes but also those of our members.
