Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™, the gold standard in attorney ratings, have recognized lawyers for their strong legal ability and high ethical standards for more than a century. Attorneys looking to refer a client, or individuals researching lawyers for their own legal needs, use these ratings to identify, evaluate and select the most appropriate lawyer for their legal issue.

The AV Rating denotes the achievement of the highest level of professional excellence. This reflects numerous years of experience and a recognition of advanced skill and integrity.
