We are very proud to announce we have received notification from Martindale-Hubbell that Shannon Simpson has received the highest possible rating, the 2018 Martindale-Hubbell® AV Preeminent “Judicial Edition” Peer Review RatingTM
Shannon Simpson was given an “AV” Preeminent rating from her peers and the Judiciary. This means that she was deemed to have very high professional ethics and preeminent legal ability. Only lawyers with the highest ethical standards and professional ability receive a Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating.
The Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings evaluate lawyers based on the anonymous opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary.
Martindale-Hubbell conducts secure online Peer Review Rating surveys of lawyers across multiple jurisdictions and geographic locations, in similar areas of practice as the lawyer being rated. Reviewers are instructed to assess their colleagues’ general ethical standards and legal ability in a specific area of practice.
The Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ help buyers of legal services identify, evaluate and select the most appropriate lawyer for a specific task at hand. The confidentiality, objectivity and complete independence of the ratings process are what have made the program a unique and credible evaluation tool for members of the legal profession. The legal community values the accuracy of lawyer peer review ratings because they are determined by their peers and the judiciary– the people who are best suited to assess the legal ability and professional ethics of their colleagues.
Congratulations Shannon on this prestigious honor!
