An AV Preeminent rating by Martindale-Hubbell is the highest possible peer review rating in both legal ability and ethical standards. It is bestowed based upon confidential reports by Judges and other lawyers in the community. At Lesser Lesser Landy & Smith, we are proud that many of our attorneys have achieved the prestigious Preeminent rating. Congratulations to Partner Mickey Smith for receiving the AV Preeminent rating for 25 consecutive years – a quarter century!
For over a hundred years, Martindale-Hubbell has used a peer review rating system that measures an attorney in terms of five areas: legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication, and experience. Ethical standards are judged separately.
“I have dealt with many attorneys through the years, but Mickey Smith is the best one I have ever dealt with. He is very friendly, personable and gets the job done. He worked very hard for me. From the first time I met him, he treated me like I was part of his family. I HIGHLY recommend him.” -Lillian
