There are more than 30,000 lawyers in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Only 26 have been named to Virginia Business’s “Legal Elite” list every year since its creation in 2000 – including McCandlish Lillard attorneys R. Peyton Mahaffey and Ralph M. Tener.

Virginia Business magazine, together with the Virginia Bar Association, survey 14,000 attorneys in the state to determine who should be honored each year for being among the best in their practice areas.
