Jul 09, 2020

MLMW is proud to announce that one of its partners, Craig T. Watrous, has achieved a Martindale-Hubbell AV® Preeminent Peer Review Rating, the highest such rating available to an individual lawyer for another year.

About Martindale-Hubbel ratings:

AV Preeminent is a significant rating accomplishment a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of excellence.

There are two components to each Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating:

1. Legal Ability Ratings -  The 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, Peer Review Ratings are based on performance in those specific fields of law. Legal Ability Ratings are: C – Good to High;  B – High to Very High;  A – Very High to Preeminent

2. General Ethical Standards Rating - The General Ethical Standards Rating denotes adherence to professional standards of conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to the discharge of professional responsibilities. The General Ethical Standard Rating is V – Very High.  A lawyer will not receive a Legal Ability Rating unless he or she has been endorsed for a “V.”

When both categories of Peer Review Ratings are confirmed, a lawyer receives a CV, BV or AV Rating.

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. Less than 9% of any attorneys achieve this rating

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.
