Jason A. Burgess Martindale-Hubbell Rated

The Law Offices of Jason A. Burgess, LLC is pleased to announce attorney Jason A. Burgess recently received the highest rating from Martindale-Hubbell, AV Preeminent.  An AV Preeminent rating 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.

The Ratings Explanation
Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ reflect a combination of achieving a Very High General Ethical Standards rating and a Legal Ability numerical rating. A threshold number of responses is required to achieve 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:
  • Legal Knowledge - Lawyer's familiarity with the laws in his or her specific area of practice(s)
  • Analytical Capabilities - Lawyer's creativity in analyzing legal issues and applying technical knowledge
  • Judgment - Lawyer's demonstration of the salient factors that drive the outcome of a given case or issue
  • Communication Ability - Lawyer's capability to communicate persuasively and credibly
  • Legal Experience - Lawyer's degree of experience in his or her specific area of practice(s)
