Martindale-Hubbell Top Rated Lawyers: Are You In?
Lawyers who are fortunate to hold a Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review RatingTM of AV Preeminent® have earned inclusion in Martindale-Hubbell Top Rated LawyersTM, a unique program that showcases their elite status.
AV Preeminent is the highest possible Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating designation. It indicates that the individual attorney is an established practicing lawyer whose local peers have observed him or her to be "Very High to Preeminent" in legal ability and to have "Very High" ethical standards. The first peer review to establish a lawyer's rating usually occurs three years after his or her first admission to the bar.
All AV-rated lawyers can be included in Martindale-Hubbell Top Rated Lawyers, a program in which LexisNexis® Martindale-Hubbell® partners with various publications around the country to produce customized guides of leading attorneys. Top Rated Lawyers lists are organized in two ways:
"An AV rating is justifiably a source of great professional pride for many attorneys," says Carlton Dyce, vice president of peer review and client review ratings services at LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell. "In fact, when we recently awarded a Maryland attorney with his AV rating for the thirtieth consecutive year, his daughter was so proud that she contacted the local news media and their hometown newspaper wrote a story about her dad's achievement. An AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell is recognized as an objective endorsement of any lawyer's credentials."
Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings are time-honored and well respected, serving as an objective tool for buyers looking to verify credentials and to gather a more complete picture of lawyers they're thinking about hiring. Unlike other lawyer rating systems, Peer Review Ratings are based purely on the confidential assessments offered by a lawyer's peers.
