Erie Lawyer Receives Highest Rating

July 07, 2012 | Posted in DUI

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.

Mr. George and his entire office staff were very kind and helping me through my first ever experience with the law. He was able to get me exactly what he said he would in the outcome of my trial. The entire staff was very informative and kept me up to date on everything. Very pleased with my experience and would most definately recommend him to others.
