Boulton Law Group is excited to announce that Indiana personal injury attorney Matt Boulton has received Martindale-Hubbell’s AV-rating for 2021. This marks multiple consecutive years that Matt has received this designation.
Who is Martindale-Hubbell?
Over 150 years ago, in 1868, attorney James B. Martindale set out to provide Americans with the address of “one reliable law firm in every city in the United States.”
Shortly after its 1868 founding, Martindale-Hubbell began to be viewed as a trusted source for attorneys who were looking to refer clients to other legal professionals.
Additionally, everyday people started using Martindale-Hubbell’s peer and client review rankings as a deciding factor when choosing a lawyer for their own various legal services.
That humble list of law firm names served business leaders and citizens for a number of years. Of course, things have changed quite a bit since Mr. Martindale’s list was first published.
The current iteration of Martindale-Hubbell continues to offer its independent peer and client review ratings, but it has also grown to be a network of more than 1 million attorneys as well as a collection of websites and tools designed to connect law professionals and buyers of legal services around the globe.
What Does It Mean to Be an AV-Rated Attorney?
Unlike today’s other popular review services, such as those provided by Google and Facebook, Martindale Hubbell not only relies on client feedback, but it requires an attorney’s peers (fellow lawyers) to judge them based on their legal ability and ethical standards.
The transparency that comes from having one’s peers judge them is what makes Martindale’s rating system rather unique. Essentially, the attorney can now be critiqued by competing law firms.
Martindale-Hubbell offers three possible ratings for attorneys who are qualified for this accreditation:
And while Distinguished and Notable do not indicate poor performance or unethical behavior, the AV-Rating is simply considered to mean that the attorney has reached the highest of professional excellence and is recognized for the highest levels of skills and integrity.
Matt is humbled to have received this rating for 2021 and wishes to thank his clients as well as his fellow peers for their kindness and efforts in making this accreditation possible.
