Legal ability ratings are based on performance in five key areas: Legal Knowledge, Analytical Capabilities, Judgment, Communication Ability, and Legal Experience. Martindale-Hubbell considers an AV Preeminent Rating to be a significant accomplishment - a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence.
