(Salt Lake City, UT) – Martindale-Hubbell, the premiere lawyer rating organization in the United States has awarded Utah personal injury law firm, The Advocates of Driggs, Bills and Day, its highest distinction for practicing lawyers, the AV rating, indicating the highest level of legal ability and ethics.
The AV rating identifies lawyers with the best legal ability and is the highest reflection of expertise, skill, experience, integrity and overall professional excellence. AV denotes strict adherence to professional standards of conduct, ethics, reliability and diligence.
“It is an honor to receive this rating from such a respected entity. At The Advocates, we share an unyielding commitment and dedication to our clients and their cases. We understand that personal injury is a difficult area of law and that our clients have real needs. We are excited to see our efforts and talents recognized by a national group,” said Matthew Driggs, founder of The Advocates.
Martindale-Hubbell ratings are considered invaluable when evaluating an attorney. When looking for a lawyer, consumers need to have confidence in the individual under consideration. By reviewing the ratings, they can select counsel with superior ethics, as well as the desired level of professional experience.
Martindale-Hubbell ratings are established by lawyers for lawyers, in several areas including personal injury. Ratings are based on the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary, including both those who are rated and those who are not. Martindale-Hubbell representatives conduct personal interviews to discuss lawyers under review with other members of the Bar. In addition, confidential questionnaires are sent to lawyers and judges in the same geographic location and/or area of practice as the lawyer being rated.
For over 130 years, Martindale-Hubbell has been the most respected source of authoritative and dependable information about members of the legal community in the Unites States, Canada and throughout the world.
