Legal matters are often unexpected. As a result, many people are thrust into a complex legal process that they are not prepared for in any way. If you are in the midst of a legal matter but feel clueless about where to go, who to trust, or what step to take first, you are not alone.

Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings reflect an attorney's general standards of ethics, ability of practice, and legal experience. Legal ability ratings are based on a number of factors, but Martindale-Hubbell® Ratings specifically assess an attorney's ability to perform in five key areas, including:

  • Legal knowledge
  • Analytical capability
  • Judgment
  • Communication ability
  • Legal experience

Based on a lawyer's ability to perform to the highest standards in each of these five areas, a numeric rating will be assigned based on a scale of 1 to 5 (with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest). Attorney Levy has adhered to the highest standards of legal performance and has been acknowledged for doing so. His standards of performance truly reflect our entire firm's philosophy of upholding high standards of ethics and practice.
