Hackensack, New Jersey – Forty (40) Cole Schotz attorneys in Hackensack, N.J., were recognized in the June 2013 issue of (201) Magazine as Top Lawyers in Bergen County.

(201) Magazine used a Professional Research Services survey to determine the top Bergen County attorneys. The survey was open to all licensed attorneys in Bergen County who were asked which attorney they would recommend in particular practice areas. Once the online nominations were complete, each nominee was carefully evaluated on the basis of the survey results, the legitimacy of their license, and their current standing with the State Bar Association of New Jersey. Attorneys who received the highest number of votes in each specialty received the honor.

(201) Magazine is published by the North Jersey Media Group, which also publishes The Record of Bergen County and more than 40 community newspapers and magazines.
