Bar and Judiciary.
over 100 years, LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell has
provided the legal community with its Lawyer Rating
system, which is based exclusively on a peer-review
process. Lawyers are rated separately on legal ability
and professional ethics reflecting the confidential
opinions of the Bar and the Judiciary. The Ratings
have become a useful resource for evaluating lawyers
for hiring as outside counsel, for referrals, or
for when seeking co-counsel in another jurisdiction.
Martindale-Hubbell's Ratings are considered invaluable
when evaluating a lawyer. When making referrals or
looking for counsel in another jurisdiction, lawyers
need to have confidence in the individual under consideration.
By reviewing the Ratings, they can select counsel
with superior ethics, as well as the desired level
of professional experience.
