Founding Partner David Berry was named the Best Lawyers® 2017 Immigration “Lawyer of the Year” in San Francisco.

Mr. Berry’s nomination follows BAL’s recent ranking by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers as a “Best Law Firm.”  BAL is also ranked as a “Best Law Firm” in the metropolitan areas of Houston and San Francisco.

Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer review evaluation. For the 2017 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, 7.3 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in almost 55,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
