Martindale-Hubbell® is considered one of the most valued and accurate attorney rating organizations. Those who are rated and praised by Martindale-Hubbell® are often the best of the best in America, and therefore, receiving a rating from the firm is almost every lawyer’s desire. Recently, Crary Buchanan was notified that they are a part of the Martindale-Hubbell® 2013 U.S. Top Ranked Law Firms™ list. This is an honor that is only given to firms where least one of every three attorneys has received an AV Preeminent® rating. This year, only 2,446 firms across the nation made it into the list, and Crary Buchanan was one of them.
Martindale-Hubbell® provides peer review ratings, which reflect a combination of very high ethical standards and an evaluation of an attorney’s legal abilities. Typically, peers at Martindale-Hubbell® rate the advocates that they review based on a scale of 1 to 5 with one being the lowest and 5 being the highest in a variety of areas. The lawyers who do the reviews will typically look at an attorney’s legal knowledge and analytical capabilities. They then look at that attorney’s judgment in cases and the lawyer’s ability to communicate persuasively and credible in the court room. Martindale-Hubbell® will then evaluate all of this in light of an attorney’s legal experience. After adding up the scores, Martindale-Hubbell® releases the official rating.
There are three different ratings that an attorney can receive after being evaluated by Martindale-Hubbell®. First, an attorney can receive an AV® Preeminent Rating by Martindale-Hubbell®. This is reserved for attorneys who gain a 4.5-5.0 overall rating. These lawyers are held to the highest level of excellence and are considered the cream of the crime. Second, attorneys can be BV Distinguished®, which means they received between a 3.0 and a 4.4. Then there are those who are stated to have been simply “Rated” by Martindale-Hubbell®, having met the high criteria of general ethical standing.
