LOS ANGELES, Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Myles L. Berman has received the prestigious AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rating by LexisNexis® Martindale-Hubbell® for 2011. Considered "the pinnacle of professional excellence earned through a strenuous Peer Review Rating process," the AV® Preeminent™ Rating signifies the "Highest Possible Rating in Both Legal Ability & Ethical Standards" to any individual lawyer.
An AV® Preeminent™ Rating is a significant achievement and testament to the fact that peers rank a lawyer at the highest level of professional excellence. Martindale-Hubbell® ratings are determined by attorneys for attorneys and reflect the anonymous opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary in the United States and Canada in two categories, Legal Ability and General Ethical Standards.
The Legal Ability Rating evaluates professional ability in the attorney's specific area of practice and is based on the areas of legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability, and legal experience. An "A" is given if an attorney is deemed to have "very high to preeminent" legal ability. An attorney must be a member of the Bar for at least 10 years to be eligible for an AV® Rating. Lawyer Ratings serve as an objective indicator for clients of legal services to justify their hiring decisions.
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. In this category, the only rating available is a "V," which stands for "very high," and in order to receive a Legal Ability Rating, an attorney must receive this General Ethical Standards Rating.
As a distinct and nationally recognized acknowledgement, the AV® Preeminent™ Rating is not only a true testament of Myles L. Berman's accomplishments and skills, placing him among the elite of fellow practitioners, but also a tribute to Myles L. Berman and the team of attorneys and staff at The Law Offices of Top Gun DUI Defense Attorney® Myles L. Berman® and their continuous commitment to the highest ethical standards and competence.
