What does it mean when a lawyer has an AV Preeminent Rating from Martindale-Hubbell?

An AV® Preeminent™ rating is the highest peer review rating from Martindale-Hubbell and for lawyers a sign of professional accomplishment not obtained by all. The rating is unique in that it gives consumers a meaningful and reliable tool for identifying qualified legal professionals. An Alabama attorney who has received this designation has reached the highest level of professional excellence as judged by others in the legal field. Martindale-Hubbell peer review ratings are determined using data collected from attorneys and judges in the attorney’s practice area. For McGuire & Associates, that includes Civil Rights Litigation and Corporate Law among other disciplines. They reflect the assessment of an attorney’s ethical standards and their qualifications in these five key areas:  

  • Legal experience
  • Analytical capabilities
  • Judgment
  • Communication ability; and
  • Legal knowledge

 Since there is no requirement to purchase a listing, Martindale-Hubbell’s peer review ratings system is widely available to all qualifying attorneys. Reviewers’ responses are kept anonymous to encourage accurate and objective evaluations. Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the peer review process , but an attorney qualifies for an AV Preeminent rating based solely upon the responses from fellow attorneys and judges. Martindale-Hubbell’s peer reviews have been trusted for more than a century by consumers and professionals alike. These rankings and reviews have helped countless people find attorneys they can trust, making an AV® Preeminent™ rating the gold standard in attorney peer reviews.
