This years list features over 300 attorneys on the Northern and Southern Nevada lists. In addition, there are breakout lists for the Best Up and Coming and Best Government attorneys. In order to be included, attorneys passed several levels of scrutiny. After nominations closed, ballots were reviewed for eligibility and each voting attorney was vetted through the State Bar of Nevada to confirm their good standing.

Nominated lawyers were scored based on the number and type of votes they received.
