What is an AV® Rating by Martindale-Hubbell®?

The Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ are an objective indicator of a lawyer’s high ethical standards and professional ability. Lawyers’ evaluations are conducted by other members of the bar and the judiciary in the United States and Canada. Reviewers are asked to assess their colleagues’ general ethical standards and legal ability in a specific area of practice. LexisNexis facilitates secure online Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ surveys of lawyers across multiple jurisdictions and geographic locations who are in similar areas of practice as the lawyer being rated.

Additionally, Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ reflect a combination of achieving a very high general ethical standards rating and a legal ability numerical rating. A specific number of responses is required to achieve a rating. Legal ability ratings are based on performance in five key areas:

  • Legal Knowledge – lawyer’s familiarity with the laws governing his / her specific area(s) of practice
  • Analytical Capabilities – lawyer’s creativity in analyzing legal issues and applying technical knowledge
  • Judgment – lawyer’s demonstration of the salient factors that drive the outcome of a given case or issue
  • Communication Ability – lawyer’s capability to communicate persuasively and credibly
  • Legal Experience – lawyer’s degree of experience in his / her specific area(s) of practice
