Best Lawyers, the oldest and most highly respected guide to the legal profession, is accepting nominations for the 21st edition of "The Best Lawyers in America."

Nominations can be submitted by the general public, clients, other attorneys and also marketing teams.

The nomination period ends Dec. 31, 2013.

Nominees should be in practice for at least 10 years, and Best Lawyers suggests nominators only submit nominations for the practice areas in which the attorney specializes.

After nominations are complete, the attorneys are divided by geographic region and practice areas. The attorneys are then evaluated by their peers on the basis of professional expertise and undergo an authentication review to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing.

"Nominating qualified attorneys is the first step in acknowledging the accomplishments of exceptional legal professionals," said Best Lawyers co-founder Steve Naifeh.

A new nomination system is online at bestlawyers.com.
