James Ray Cottrell, David H. Fletcher and John K Cottrell have all been listed in Best Lawyers in America. Best Lawyers is the most generally respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. 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. Complimentary to this honor, each attorney has also been rated "AV", the highest possible designation of competence and ethical practice given by Martindale-Hubbell, the oldest peer rated legal publication in the United States. As a result, our firm has also been designated as a “Pre-eminent Law Firm” by Martindale-Hubbell due to this extraordinary ranking of all its name attorneys.
The firm has also been repeatedly selected for inclusion in 2011-2021 U.S. News—Best Lawyers "Best Law Firms" in the top tier for the metropolitan area (DC-VA-MD). The rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process by U.S. News in conjunction with Best Lawyers analyzing an unprecedented amount of data.
