The Best Lawyers in America, 2012 Edition, has named Louis Wooten as one of its “Best Lawyers in America: in the areas of Tax Litigation and Controversy, Tax Law and Trusts and Estates.
For a quarter century, Best Lawyers has helped lawyers and clients find legal counsel in unfamiliar jurisdictions or unfamiliar practice areas. Best Lawyers compiles lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers.
The current, 17th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2011), is based on more than 3.1 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers. Because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be included, a listing in Best Lawyers is widely regarded within the legal profession as a singular honor, conferred on a lawyer by his or her peers. During its 25 history, Best Lawyers lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media, and the public, as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.
