Most people don’t think about having an attorney in their corner until they find themselves in a situation—on the verge of divorce, in a business dispute, even accused of a crime. So how do you find “the right” attorney when time is short?

We asked our readers who they turn to when in need for everything from adoption to zoning matters—and they responded in kind. The results: our 2017 Top Attorneys roundup. No matter the legal matter, the men and women featured on the following pages stand ready, able and eager to represent.
