Forty-three Taylor Porter attorneys have achieved the prestigious honor of the Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent Rating, peer rated for highest level of professional excellence with only 10 percent of attorneys receiving this honor.
The Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™, the gold standard in attorney ratings, recognize lawyers for their strong legal ability and high ethical standards. Attorneys looking to refer a client, as well as individuals researching lawyers for their own legal needs, use these ratings to identify, evaluate and select the most appropriate lawyer for their legal issue. Taken together, peer review ratings and client review ratings deliver a comprehensive view of a lawyer’s legal abilities and service and benefit the entire legal community.
Taylor Porter's 43 attorneys who are ranked AV Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell include:
The Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings evaluates lawyers based on the anonymous opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary, including both those who are rated and those who are not. The first review to establish a lawyer's rating usually occurs three years after his/her first admission to the Bar. Martindale-Hubbell co\nducts secure online Peer Review Ratings surveys of lawyers across multiple jurisdictions and geographic locations, in similar areas of practice as the lawyer being rated. Reviewers are instructed to assess their colleagues' general ethical standards and legal ability in a specific area of practice. The confidentiality, objectivity and complete independence of the ratings process are what have made the program a unique and credible evaluation tool for members of the legal profession. The legal community values the accuracy of lawyer peer review ratings because they are determined by their peers – the people who are best suited to assess the legal ability and professional ethics of their colleagues.
