For the last 100 years, lawyers have looked to the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory for authoritative information on the worldwide legal profession. Martindale's Peer Review Ratings play an important role in this service to the legal community. Peer Review Ratings help attest to a lawyer's professional ethics and legal ability, and reflect confidential opinions of members of the Bar and Judiciary. The Martindale-Hubbell Ratings provide an independent review of lawyers to aid buyers of legal services in choosing the right lawyer for their legal needs.
James F. Early, as a member of Early, Lucarelli, Sweeney & Meisenkothen, has been awarded the highest accolade in Martindale-Hubbell; an AV rating. This is as a result of an extensive, confidential review conducted among the legal profession in his community.
The AV rating is important because it is a confirmation of the status he has achieved as a highly respected, ethical member of the Bar. It signifies that his legal abilities are of the very highest standard and that his professional ethics are unquestioned.
Martindale-Hubbell has gone to considerable lengths to confirm the validity of his rating. To maintain the accuracy of this rating, periodic reevaluations are conducted. For more information about this rating system, please visit the Martindale-Hubbell web site.
