Moffatt Thomas attorney, James L. Martin, celebrates 10 years of highest attorney rating

Boise, ID (October 26, 2016) – Moffatt Thomas attorney James L. Martin celebrates the 10th Anniversary of having been recommended by peers and selected by Martindale-Hubbell® for their highest possible rating: the AV® Preeminent rating. Less than 1% of lawyers have achieved this impressive milestone.

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 such as James L. Martin has been reviewed and recommended by peers: members of the bar and the judiciary.

LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell’s Peer Review Rating and Client Review Services commented on James L. Martin’s anniversary: “Being honored by your peers and ultimately selected for the AV Preeminent Rating is a significant achievement for any attorney – only achieved by about 5% of lawyers. James L. Martin has joined an even more exclusive group by maintaining this rating for 10 years. This is an achievement certainly worthy of special recognition. Congratulations!”
