)-- Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith, PLLC (LLL&S) announces that all firm attorneys are now AV® Preeminent™ Rated by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating in ethics and legal ability. While LLL&S partners Shepard P. Lesser, Gary S. Lesser, Joseph B. Landy and Michael S. Smith along with Lloyd A. Comiter who serves as Of Counsel have long been AV® Rated, firm associates recently achieving the peer-review rating are C. Reid Bierer, Chad C. Hastings, Glenn E. Siegel, Merryl Silverman Haber, and John M. Howe who serves Of Counsel.
Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings evaluates lawyers in the United States and Canada based on the anonymous opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary, including both those who are rated and those who are not. The first review to establish a lawyer's rating usually occurs three years after his/her first admission to the Bar. The ratings reflect a combination of achieving a Very High General Ethical Standards rating and a Legal Ability numerical rating. A threshold number of responses are required in order to achieve a rating. The General Ethical Standards rating denotes adherence to professional standards of conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to the discharge of professional responsibilities. Those lawyers who meet the "Very High" criteria of General Ethical Standards can proceed to the next step in the ratings process. Legal Ability ratings indicate professional ability within a specific area of practice based on performance in five key areas: Legal Knowledge, Analytical Capabilities, Judgment, Communication Ability and Legal Experience.
“We are proud to have our entire legal team AV Rated as it provides potential clients with the most credible and comprehensive view of a lawyer or law firm to help them choose the right one for their particular legal matter,” noted LLL&S Managing Partner Gary Lesser. “Having our full firm with this exceptional peer review status is a testament to the high ethical standard to which we hold fast and the exceptional legal ability we provide.”
