“Best Law Firms” is one of U.S. News & World Report’s series of consumer guides. The magazine teams with Best Lawyers, the oldest peer-review publication in the legal profession, to rank each practice area by geographic region. In surveys, law firm clients and leading lawyers were asked what factors they considered vital for clients who hire firms, and for lawyers who choose firms to refer legal matters to.

Monnat & Spurrier was founded in 1985 by defense attorney Dan Monnat and legal scholar Stan Spurrier. The firm has six lawyers and has gained an international reputation through its defense of such high-profile clients as late-term abortion provider Dr. George Tiller, the Garden Plain football coach, Todd Puetz, and the unfortunate person whose home was mistakenly raided by police as being that of serial killer BTK.

In addition to Monnat and Spurrier, the firm includes three former prosecutors and a former public defender, all noted for their work in criminal courts: Trevor Riddle, Sal Intagliata, Jon McConnell and Robb Hunter.
