The Rosenthal Law Group is proud to announce that our founder, attorney Alex Rosenthal has received the AV Preeminent® Rating from Martindale-Hubbell® Law Directory for 2014!
What does the AV® Rating mean to the consumer and why is it important to someone searching for quality legal counsel? The Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ help people identify, evaluate and select the most appropriate attorney for a specific legal matter. The lawyer ratings serve as an objective indicator that an attorney has demonstrated the highest ethical standards and professional ability. The lawyer ratings are used by buyers of legal services to justify their choices of attorneys.
The Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ are a non-biased indicator of an attorney's high ethical standards and professional ability; they are generated from evaluations of attorneys and other members of the bar and the judiciary. An attorney generally receives his or her first review three years after first being admitted to the bar.
The Martindale-Hubbell® ratings are based on a lawyer's performance in five key areas; they are rated on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest. These key areas include:
- Legal knowledge
- Analytical capabilities
- Communication skills
- Experience in the legal profession
The AV Preeminent® Rating (4.5-5.0) is a significant rating accomplishment for an attorney and a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional competence; it is the highest rating an attorney can receive by Martindale-Hubbell® Rating Services.
