The Martindale-Hubbell Lawyer Ratings are a result of a peer review system with a history that spans more than a century. Peer Review Ratings attest to a lawyer’s professional legal ability and ethics and are based on the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary.
The Bar Register had been a unique guide to the legal community’s most eminent professionals for over 90 years. It includes only those select law practices that have earned the highest rating in the Martindale-Hubbell® Law Directory and have been designated by their colleagues as preeminent in their field.
Martindale-Hubbell is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell Ratings fall into two categories – legal ability and general ethical standards.
The General Ethical Standards Rating denotes adherence to professional standards of conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to the discharge of professional responsibilities. The General Recommendation Rating is “V”- Very High.
Legal Ability Ratings take into consideration the standard of professional ability in the area where the lawyer practices, the lawyer’s expertise, and other professional qualifications. If a lawyer’s practice is limited or specialized, Peer Review Ratings are based on performance in those specific fields of law.
Legal Ability Ratings are: C – Good to High. B – High to Very High. A – Very High to Preeminent
