In 1887, Martindale-Hubbell created this peer-review system for fellow lawyers, where attorneys can be reviewed by other attorneys.  Before you can receive a peer-review rating, you must first be evaluated for the “V” part of the rating. If you’re endorsed with a “V” (meaning “very high”), it means you’ve followed the professional rules of conduct and ethics. After this endorsement, you’re given an A, B, or C rating.  AV Rating or AV Preeminent is the highest rating you can get in the peer-review process.  If you receive an AV rating, it means you’ve been recognized for having high levels of integrity and skill.
