Kates & Barlow is proud to announce that Peter Barlow was recently selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2014. Because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. As a result of the level of peer review received by Barlow, the firm has received a Tier 1 Ranking in the practice of family law for the Boston metropolitan area. Since 1983, Best Lawyers has been regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence and the most respected referral list of attorneys in the practice.
