Attorney/partner Scott F. Lundberg receives highest rating from Martindale-Hubbell

Seattle, WA – July, 2012

GLP Attorneys is pleased to announce that Scott F. Lundberg has received the AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell.

According to their website, Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings are a combination of achieving a very high rating in General Ethical Standards and a Legal Ability numerical rating. Candidates must receive a certain number of responses to receive a rating.

The General Ethical Standards rating means the attorney adheres to professional standards of conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to practicing law. Those lawyers who are judged to have “Very High” General Ethical Standards can proceed to the next step in the ratings process – Legal Ability.

Legal Ability ratings are based on performance in five key areas, rated on a scale of one to five (with one being the lowest and five being the highest). These areas are:

  1. Legal Knowledge – Lawyer’s familiarity with the laws in his or her specific area of practice(s)
  2. Analytical Capabilities – Lawyer’s creativity in analyzing legal issues and applying technical knowledge
  3. Judgment – Lawyer’s demonstration of the salient factors that drive the outcome of a given case or issue
  4. Communication Ability – Lawyer’s capability to communicate persuasively and credibly
  5. Legal Experience – Lawyer’s degree of experience in his or her specific area of practice(s)

After lawyers have been evaluated on their legal ability, they will receive one of three ratings:

AV Preeminent (4.5-5.0), BV Distinguished (3.0-4.4) or Rated (1.0-2.9)

The AV Preeminent is a significant rating accomplishment- a testament to the fact that a lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence. Scott Lundberg has received the ‘Highest Possible Rating in Both Legal Ability & Ethical Standards Reflecting the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and Judiciary’. Scott’s rating gives GLP Attorneys the AV Preeminent rating as well.
