Martindale-Hubbell AV Rating

This will be a short post because I am in the middle of several patent infringement cases (some of which involve aspects of social media–yay!). I was recently given an AV Preeminent Rating by Martindale. For those who are not familiar with the awards and rankings, here is a quick explanation:


Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ reflect a combination of achieving a Very High General Ethical Standards rating and a Legal Ability numerical rating. A threshold number of responses is required to achieve a rating. 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. Those lawyers who meet the “Very High” criteria of General Ethical Standards can proceed to the next step in the ratings process – Legal Ability.
So there you have it. Someone–and not just anyone–sees me as preeminent. And no, I did not receive anything from Martindale, nor did it receive anything from me, as a result of this of any other post.
