The Pennsylvania injury law firm of Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C. is pleased to announce that Erie injury attorney Eric Purchase has received a rating of AV - Preeminent by the Martindale Hubbell Peer Review Rating service.  The Martindale-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 rating a Pennsylvania 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."

Martindale-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 the 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 Capabilities; 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.
