Savannah Business Lawyer Earns Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent Rating

(SAVANNAH, GA) Business attorney, Charles Bowen has received the Martindale-Hubbell® AV® Preeminent™ rating, the highest rating based upon confidential surveys sent to other attorneys. For more than 130 years, Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ have helped legal service clients recognize, assess and decide the most suitable counselor for the job.

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates and analyzes questionnaires of members of the bar and the judiciary (lawyers and judges) in the United States and Canada, in similar areas of practice and/or industries as the lawyer being rated. Reviewers must demonstrate that they know or have worked with the lawyer under review, and are able to rate them on their professional ethical standards and legal ability. A peer can submit only one report for a specific lawyer within a one-year period.

Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ indicate a combination of achieving an Ethical Standards rating and a Legal Ability numerical rating. The General Ethical Standards rating signifies adherence to professional standards of conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to carrying out professional responsibilities. Those lawyers who meet the criteria of General Ethical Standards can advance to the Legal Ability rating process. Legal Ability ratings are based on performance in five fundamental areas: Legal Knowledge; Analytical Capabilities; Judgment; Communication Ability; and Legal Experience.

The numeric ratings range coincide with the appropriate Certification Mark: AV Preeminent® (4.5-5.0); BV Distinguished® (3.0-4.4); and Rated (1.0-2.9). The AV Preeminent serves as a testament to the fact that a lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence.
