St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) November 13, 2014
Last month on Sept. 16, Cantor & Burger, LLC received word that partner and attorney Mark Cantor achieved the prestigious honor of an AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell, a highly-respected directory of lawyers.
Candidates for the rating are nominated and evaluated by lawyers and judges who practice the same area of law.
“These are people who know you," said Cantor, "Your work, your reputation, and how you perform professionally with clients, staff and industry peers.”
After being nominated, candidates must receive high ratings from 24 anonymous people outside their practice before they can move forward in the process. Attorneys are evaluated based on professional ethics and legal ability before being given a rating. The AV Preeminent rating is the highest score on the spectrum, reserved for a select group of candidates who have been given a majority of five-star review ratings from judges and fellow attorneys.
"This rating is highly valued because it isn’t based on public nominations," Cantor explained. "This is no popularity contest; it’s a pure measure of lawyers as professionals."
Cantor handles personal injury cases involving truck, car and motorcycle accidents as well as medical malpractice and wrongful death claims. He's especially renowned in the legal community surrounding workers' compensation cases and recently set the legal precedent for determining wage rate in Missouri. Cantor has successfully tried and won a large volume of workers' compensation claims over his 20 years of legal practice. He's licensed to practice law in Missouri and Illinois.
His law partner Gary Burger is also an AV Preeminent peer review rated attorney.
"Having two attorneys that are AV-rated is a very rare occurrence," Cantor said. "Less than 5% of all lawyers in the US achieve the AV rating."
This distinction demonstrates both of the firm's partners' competencies with the law, high ethical standards, and provides assurances to current and prospective clients that they have excellent legal representation.
