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 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 it is the highest possible ranking that 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 that lawyer considered for a rating. If a lawyer is considered, judges and other lawyers will rank the 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.
