If you’re like most people, you don’t think too much about lawyers—until you need one. And given the overwhelming number of attorneys in Greater Boston, it’s not always easy to know whom to call. That’s where we come in. For the third year in a row, we’re bringing you a curated list of the 979 top attorneys in a wide range of legal specialties, from corporate to family law—and even one aviation law specialist.

To compile this extensive guide, Boston magazine (in partnership with DataJoe Research) invited lawyers representing our readership area (towns within, or partially within, I-495) to nominate up to three of their peers in a select number of law specialties via an online survey. The top vote-getters in each specialty were then reviewed by an advisory board of select lawyers, chosen for their credentials and the high number of votes they received. Sort by name, town, or specialty to find the pro you need, and then let them do the hard work. Questions about this list can be emailed to
