Attorney Profile

1. Ratings from Martindale-Hubbell reflect the confidential opinions of bar members and the judiciary, and attest to the individual lawyer's legal ability and adherence to professional standards of excellence. An AV Preeminent Rating shows that a lawyer has reached the height of professional excellence. He or she has usually practiced law for many years, and is recognized for the highest levels of skill and integrity. It is the top rating that one can receive.

2. Best Lawyers has come to be regarded - by both the legal profession and the public - as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States. Ratings are exclusively based upon an independent statewide survey of fellow practitioners, not advertising or any other biases.

3. NADC is an organization dedicated to promoting the highest standards of legal excellence. Members are thoroughly vetted by a research team, selected by a blue ribbon panel of attorneys with podium status from independently neutral organizations, and approved by a judicial review board as exhibiting virtue in the practice of law. Due to the incredible selectivity of the appointment process, only the top one percent of attorneys in the United States are awarded membership in NADC. This elite class of advocates consists of the finest leaders of the legal profession from across the nation.

4. Legal Elite attorneys comprise 1.8% of the 57,968 attorneys who practice in the State of Florida. Ratings are exclusively based upon an independent statewide survey of fellow practitioners, not advertising or any other biases.

Ratings are exclusively based upon an independent statewide survey of fellow practitioners, not advertising or any other biases.

6. South Florida Legal Guide - Top Lawyers reflects the confidential survey of fellow practitioners, not advertising or any other biases.
