What is an AV Rating?
When choosing an attorney many people rely on mass advertisements rather than substance. Martindale-Hubbel and Associates have created a way for both clients and peers to rate attorneys long before the internet even existed in 1887, thus making the search for a reputable attorney easier. Lawyers are rated on two different components: Legal ability and ethical standard. Legal ability is rated by the letters C, B, and A. C is considered very good, B is high, and A is exceptional. The second factor is ethical standard which is denoted by the letter V. In order to be ranked as AV, one must be exemplary in their legal ability and peer rated for their ethical standard. Ms. Green has earned the prestigious rating of “Preeminent AV”, which only the top 5% of lawyers hold.
