Interested in joining the ranks of the Legal League 100? Membership in the Legal League 100 is subject to an application process to maintain the requisite level of excellence within the organization. Firms must operate in the state which they are applying to represent. Each state is subject to a cap on the number of members it is permitted to have, which is directly proportional to the state’s share of nationwide foreclosure volume.

“The Legal League 100 represents the opportunity to forge new relationships with colleagues and clients from across the country. It is also the opportunity to lend a voice to issues in the states where we practice and influence policy and decision makers from all aspects of our industry.”

– Neil Sherman, Schneiderman & Sherman, P.C.
