)-- The Long Island Divorce and Family Law firm of Robert E. Hornberger, Esq., P.C. is pleased to announce the firm’s founding and named partner, Robert E. Hornberger, Esq. has received the prestigious Lead Counsel Rating.
The Lead Counsel Rating was established in 1997 as an independent quality assurance tool consumers and businesses can use to quickly and easily evaluate a prospective attorney's ability and credibility. Some of the highlights of attorneys who earn the Lead Counsel Rating are their ability to put the needs of their clients first, their reasonable fees and their spotless disciplinary record with their State Bar Association.
“It’s very gratifying to me personally, and professionally, to receive the Lead Counsel Rating,” Hornberger said. “People generally seek out an attorney, and particularly a divorce attorney on Long Island when they are in distress and need expert guidance they can trust. Legal representation is serious business and consumers need to know they can trust their divorce attorney to look out for their best interests. The Lead Counsel Rating provides consumers with some peace of mind that they’re hiring a divorce attorney that has their best interests at heart.”
Lead Counsel allows businesses and consumers to research their Long Island divorce attorneys prior to retaining them to ensure they are making the correct decision. This is a prestigious honor, as attorneys who earn the Lead Counsel Rating must receive positive reviews from their colleagues and those with whom they work.
Hiring an attorney is typically done when an individual or business is facing some sort of emergency. When it comes to these serious legal issues, the difference between a successful resolution and an unfavorable outcome may rest on an attorney's experience, expertise and reputation. When consumers or businesses see the Lead Counsel Rating, they can be assured the attorney has met strict qualification standards that include:
· Professional Experience
· Peer Recommendations
· Spotless Disciplinary Record
