The Martindale-Hubbell rating system was established by attorneys for attorneys, and an AV rating is a clear indication that the attorney demonstrates the highest professional and ethical standards.

The “A” signifies the highest level of legal ability, while the “V” denotes “very high” adherence to the professional standards of conduct, ethics, reliability and diligence.” Further information about the ratings process may be found at www.martindale.com
