I’ve just learned that I have been rated AV (4.9 out of 5.0) by Martindale-Hubbell. This is a peer-review rating, and the highest rating available.

According to Martindale.com, the AV rating means:

“AV® Preeminent™ (4.5 – 5.0) – An AV® certification mark is a significant rating accomplishment – a testament to the fact that a lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence.”

For over 140 years, Martindale-Hubbell has been relied up by lawyers and prospective clients to provide information about lawyers, their practices, and their abilities. I am deeply honored to have achieved this high level of recognition.
