Surveys are conducted by LexisNexis where lawyers across multiple jurisdictions in similar practice areas are asked to provide their opinion about their colleagues’ general ethical standards and their legal abilities in their area of practice. Once the results are in, the ratings are published in the Martindale-Hubbell®
The ratings reflect achieving a very high general ethical standards rating and a legal ability numeric rating. An attorney’s general ethical standards rating demonstrates a strict adherence to professional standards of conduct and ethics. The legal ability rating is based on an attorney’s legal knowledge (knowledge of their area of practice), their analytical capabilities, their good judgment, their ability to communicate persuasively, and their legal experience in their area of practice.
