About Martindale-Hubbell Ratings
The Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ are an objective indicator of a lawyer's high ethical standards and professional ability, generated from evaluations of lawyers by other members of the bar and the judiciary in the United States and Canada. The first review to establish a lawyer's rating usually occurs three years after his/her first admission to the bar. The ratings reflect a combination of achieving a “Very High General Ethical Standards” rating and a Legal Ability numerical rating, which is based on performance in five key areas: legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability and legal experience. According to Martindale-Hubbell, “An AV Preeminent rating is a significant accomplishment, it is a testament to the fact that a lawyer’s peers rate him or her at the highest level of professional excellence.”
