Michigan personal injury lawyers given highest 2012 AV Rating from Martindale-Hubbell

January 18, 2011 by Steven M. Gursten

The AV Rating by Martindale-Hubbell peer review rating signifies the height of legal excellence and ethics for Michigan Auto Law

Michigan Auto Law has been given an AV Rating by the Martindale-Hubbell organization. This is the highest rating that can be conferred upon an individual attorney or law firm. The personal injury lawyers at Michigan Auto Law have been exclusively handling car accident, truck accident and motorcycle accident cases for more than 50 years.

The “AV” designation shows that a lawyer has reached the height of professional excellence. An AV-Rated lawyer has usually practiced law for many years, and is recognized for having the highest levels of skill and integrity.

Below is a detailed explanation of the rating system and process.

Legal Ability Ratings:

Take into consideration the standard of professional ability in the area where the lawyer practices, the lawyer’s expertise, and other professional qualifications. If a lawyer’s practice is limited or specialized – such as that of Michigan Auto Law – Peer Review Ratings are based on performance in those specific fields of law, like car accident litigation.

The Legal Ability Ratings are:
A – Very high to preeminent
B – High to very high
C – Good to high

General Ethical Standards Rating:

Denotes adherence to professional standards of legal conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to the discharge of professional lawyer responsibilities.

The General Recommendation Rating is:  V – Very High

Peer Review Ratings reflect career development

A lawyer’s Peer Review Rating will generally improve over time. But Peer Review Ratings can be revised downward, or even removed if a decline is noted in ability or ethical standards.

AV Peer Review Rating:

Shows that a lawyer has reached the height of professional excellence. He or she has usually practiced law for many years, and is recognized for the highest levels of skill and integrity.

BV Peer Review Rating:

An indication of an exemplary reputation and well-established practice. A typical lawyer is in mid-career, with a significant client base and high professional standing.

CV Peer Review Rating:

An excellent first Rating and a statement of a lawyer’s above average ability and very high ethics.
