For more than 30 years, this ­newspaper has surveyed Washington-area law firms about their lawyer head count. In the 2009 Legal Times 150 survey, firms were asked to provide data for each office in the Washington metropolitan area—including the District of Columbia, Montgomery and Prince George’s counties in Maryland, and Arlington and Fairfax counties and the cities of Alexandria and Falls Church in Virginia.
