The designation reflects the confidential opinions of both rated and non-rated peers from the lawyer's Bar and/or area of legal practice.  How is a Rated Status Achieved?Reviews occur in stages over the course of a lawyer's career with the first review typically after a United States or Canadian lawyer has been admitted to a state or provincial bar for 10 years or more. Personal interviews are conduct by LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell representatives, confidential questionnaires are distributed and, at times, lawyers under review may be asked to provide professional references to assist with the process. The data is compiled and a result is determined., AV Preeminent Rating, Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings, 2020
