Four Vandeventer Black Attorneys Receive Prestigious Peer Rating

Norfolk, VA. (March 31, 2015) – Vandeventer Black LLP has received notification from Martindale-Hubbell that four attorneys have received an “AV” Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating™.  Martindale-Hubbell is recognized as the legal profession’s most prestigious rating service.

Attorneys Arlene Klinedinst (Labor & Employment), Neil Lowenstein (Appellate Practice, Commercial Litigation),  and Kimberley Timms (Appellate Practice, Insurance Coverage Defense) received an “AV” rating from their peers. In order to be given a Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating™, attorneys must have very high professional ethics and preeminent legal ability.  Only those lawyers with the highest ethical standards and professional ability receive a Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating.

“This recognition is fast becoming the standard for which attorneys are measured, and we are honored to add to our growing list of AV-rated attorneys,” said Michael L. Sterling, Managing Partner. “To be identified by their peers as being among the best in the legal profession demonstrates our high standards and the quality of client services we offer.”

Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings were created in 1887 as an objective tool to attest to a lawyer’s ability and professional ethics, based on the confidential opinions of other lawyers and judges who have worked with the lawyers they are evaluating. Attorneys are evaluated based on the anonymous opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary. It is the confidentiality, objectivity and complete independence of the ratings process that have made the program a unique and credible evaluation tool for members of the legal profession.  The legal community values the accuracy of lawyer peer review ratings because they are assigned by those best suited to assess the legal ability and professional ethics of their colleagues.
