I am very pleased to share with you an amazing award that was received by one of our attorneys, Richard F. Zimmerman, III. He received the BV Distinguished award from Martindale-Hubbell. This is a very high rating for both Legal Ability & Ethical Standards.
The Martindale-Hubbell “Peer Review Ratings” are designed to help buyers of legal services identify, evaluate and select the most appropriate lawyer for a specific practice area. Lawyer Ratings serve as an objective indicator that a lawyer has the highest ethical standards and professional ability and are used by buyers of legal services to justify their hiring decisions.
There are three levels of awards:
• AV Preeminent (4.5-5.0) – 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 professional excellence.
• BV Distinguished (3.0-4.4) – BV Distinguished® is an excellent rating for a lawyer with some experience. A widely respected mark of achievement, it differentiates a lawyer from his or her competition.
• Rated (1.0-2.9) – The Peer Review Rated designation demonstrates that the lawyer has met the very high criteria of General Ethical Standing.
Richard has been with our law firm for over 5 years. He is dedicated to finding out every detail that pertains to the case and fighting for his clients I am proud to have him on our team. Congratulations on a well-deserved award Richard!
