WESTCHESTER COUNTY BANKRUPTCY ATTORNEY
What it Means to be AV Peer Review Rated on Martindale-Hubbell®
The Martindale-Hubbell® PEER REVIEW RATINGS™ are an indicator of an attorney's high ethical standards and professional ability. The ratings are generated from evaluations of lawyers and other members of the bar and the judiciary in the United States and Canada. An attorney receives his or her first review approximately three years after their admission to the bar.
LexisNexis conducts secure online Martindale-Hubbell® PEER REVIEW RATINGS™ surveys of attorneys across multiple jurisdictions and nationwide, in similar areas of practice to the attorney who is being rated. Those surveyed are asked to assess their colleagues' general ethical standards, as well as their legal ability in a specific field of practice. Once the ratings have been assigned, they appear in the Martindale-Hubbell® Law Directory and various other sources.
The Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ indicate a combination of achieving Very High ethical standards and a Legal Ability numeric rating. In order to achieve a certain rating, a specified number of responses must be obtained. Those attorneys who meet the "Very High" criteria of the General Ethical Standards are thrust into the next step in the rating process – Legal Ability.
The Legal Ability ratings are based on the attorney's performance in five areas which are rated on a scale of 1 to 5 (with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest). The five key areas are:
- Legal Knowledge
- Analytical Capabilities
- Communication Ability
- Legal Experience
The AV® Preeminent™ (4.5-5.0) rating is the highest rating an attorney can achieve. Not only is the AV® Preeminent™ rating a significant accomplishment, it illustrates the fact that the attorney's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional accomplishment and excellence.
