Martindale-Hubbell Rating

Martindale-Hubbell is the facilitator of a peer review process that rates lawyers. Ratings reflect the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell ratings fall into two categories – legal ability and general ethical standards.

Legal ability ratings are

C = Good to High
B = High to Very High
A = Very High to Preeminent

There is one general ethical standard rating – “V” or “very high” – and an attorney must receive it in order to be rated.
