SB Magazine sent ballots to over 800 lawyers in the Shreveport-Bossier community. Voters were asked the following question: Which Shreveport-Bossier lawyers, of those whose work you have witnessed firsthand, would you rank among the current best? Voters could nominate one lawyer from their own firms and two lawyers from outside firms. Each ballot had to be signed and lawyers could not vote for themselves. The votes are in and the Top Attorneys list has been compiled to bring you the best of the best.
