The Martindale-Hubbell® AV Preeminent® rating is the highest possible rating for an attorney for both ethical standards and legal ability. This rating represents the pinnacle of professional excellence. It is achieved only after an attorney has been reviewed and recommended by their peers – members of the bar and the judiciary.  These peers are asked to rate the attorney in five key areas of legal ability:  legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability and legal experience.
