Lawyer & Law Firm Ratings

Lawyers and law firms are rated according to peer review, and this is one great way to determine whether or not you should hire a particular lawyer or law firm.

The rating system employed by Martindale-Hubbell is the perfect place to start. They rate lawyers in the United States and Canada using a system based on peer review. Martindale-Hubbel collects confidential information from members of the Bar and the Judiciary to compile a comprehensive rating for each individual lawyer and law firm. Although not all lawyers and law firms have been rated, it is extensive enough that you should be able to find a highly-rated lawyer or law firm in your area.

It is easy to trust the Martindale-Hubbell ratings for several reasons. For one thing, all reviews are confidential, which allows lawyers and members of the Judiciary to give impartial evaluations of their colleagues. Secondly, it is safe to say that most lawyers and law firms are well-known in their geographical area. It is almost impossible not to run into colleagues at functions and in court. This ensures that all lawyers and law firms are given the most fair rating possible.

Ratings are given at five-year intervals after a lawyer has been given admission to the Bar. Law firms are rated based on the evaluation of their most highly-rated partner, and representatives investigate each rating after they have received their reviews.

In order for a lawyer or law firm to be given a rating by Martindale-Hubbel, they must have achieved a "V" classification, which stands for Very High. There are three different ratings under the "V" classification:

Rating Classification: CV

A CV rating indicates that the lawyer or law firm has maintained a high code of ethics and is well-received by his or her peers.

Rating Classification: BV

This indicates that the lawyer or law firm has been in practice for at least ten years, and is commended by his or her peers. It is also indicative of a large client base.

Rating Classification: AV

This is the highest rating that a lawyer or law firm can receive, and indicates a high level of integrity as well as a satisfied client base.

When looking for a lawyer or law firm, check the Martindale-Hubbell ratings to see which lawyers or firms in your area have achieved a "V" rating. Just because a lawyer has not been rated does not mean that he or she isn't competent, but sometimes it's better to look for lawyers who have been recognized for integrity and ability.
