We begin the fourth year of Legal Times ‘ Leading Lawyers series with a report on Washington, D.C., attorneys who specialize in white-collar criminal defense. Every time we’ve compiled one of these lists, some very experienced, very successful lawyers have missed the cut.

But just wait for the phone calls: “How dare you include me? Why wasn’t I in the group too good to mention?” So we did it the old-fashioned way � we chose 10 go-to attorneys. Listed in alphabetical order. With no disrespect intended to the talented next 20. Or 25. How did Legal Times winnow down this list? We solicited suggestions from readers and reporters.
