NEW YORK, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Martindale-Hubbell, a division of LexisNexis®, has confirmed that attorney Thatcher A. Stone still maintains the AV Preeminent Rating, Martindale-Hubbell's highest possible rating for both ethical standards and legal ability, after first achieving this rating in 1993. Earlier this year Stone was the recipient of Martindale-Hubbell®'s Client Distinction award, because his clients found him to be superior when it came to listening, action and attention. He was also identified as one of the New York area's top lawyers by American Lawyer Media in December of 2012.
For more than 130 years, lawyers have relied on the Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent® rating while searching for their own expert attorneys. This rating represents the pinnacle of professional excellence. It is achieved only after an attorney has been reviewed and recommended by their peers - members of the bar and the judiciary.
About Thatcher A. Stone: a short profile:
After graduating from UVA with a degree in Economics in 1978 and the Law School in 1982, Stone spent 25 years on Wall Street financing new Boeing and Airbus aircraft literally all over the world while also engaged in commercial and estate litigation. He advised a White House-led task force about aviation insurance after 9-11 and he regularly represented the U.S. Export-Import Bank in aircraft financings. He turned his attention to litigation representing those who have been mistreated by the airlines, whether discrimination, breach of contract or other claims. He has settled cases before or won decisions in U.S. District Courts and the U.S. Courts of Appeal. A case he brought against Northwest and Delta on behalf of a frequent flyer and which he won twice in the Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit against an Am Law 100 law firm – once on appeal from a District Court in San Diego and once on rehearing - will be heard before the U.S. Supreme Court in the October 2013 term. He practices in New York, and lives in Keswick, Virginia. He is a Lecturer at the UVA Law School.
