The Erie Pennsylvania criminal defense & DUI law firm of Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C. is pleased to announce that Erie criminal & DUI attorney, Tim George, has received a rating of AV - Preeminent by the Matindale Hubbell Peer Review Rating service. The Martinidal Hubbell Peer Review Ratings are designed to help people identify, evaluate and choose the best lawyer for their case. The AV Preeminent rating "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" and is the highest possible ranking a Pennsaylvania lawyer can receive.

According to Martindale Hubbell, the ratings are "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."

Marindale-Hubbell asks Judges and lawyers who know a lawyer to rate the lawyer. Only if a lawyer is considered to have "Very High" general ethical standards is a lawyer considered for a rating. If considered, judges and other lawyers will rank a lawyer on a scale of 1 to 5 (with five being the highest) in five areas: Legal Knowledge, Analytical Capabilties; Judgment; Communication Ability; and Legal Experience. Lawyers who receive a ranking below 3.0 are considered "Ranked"; lawyers who receive a ranking below 4.5 are considered "BV - Distinguished" which "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." Only the highest rated Pennsylvania attorneys receive an AV rating.
