PEER REVIEW RATING

martindalehubbell_logo

AV® Preeminent 4.4 out of 5 from Martindale-Hubbell (which is considered to be ‘distinguished’)


The Ratings Explanation

Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ reflect a combination of achieving a Very High General Ethical Standards rating and a Legal Ability numerical rating. A threshold number of responses is required to achieve a rating.

The General Ethical Standards rating denotes adherence to professional standards of conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to the discharge of professional responsibilities. Those lawyers who meet the “Very High” criteria of General Ethical Standards can proceed to the next step in the ratings process – Legal Ability.


Legal Ability ratings are based on performance in five key areas, rated on a scale of 1 to 5 (with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest). These areas are:

Legal Knowledge – Lawyer’s familiarity with the laws governing his/her specific area of practice(s)

Analytical Capabilities – Lawyer’s creativity in analyzing legal issues and applying technical knowledge

Judgment – Lawyer’s demonstration of the salient factors that drive the outcome of a given case or issue.

Communication Ability – Lawyer’s capability to communicate persuasively and credibly

Legal Experience – Lawyer’s degree of experience in his/her specific area of practice(s)
