Peers Rate Jane Muir “Preeminent”

Peers Rate Jane Muir “Preeminent

Attorneys reviewed Jane Muir for her ethical standards and legal ability in Litigation, Business Law and General Practice, and gave her the highest “AV Preeminent” rating, according to Martindale-Hubbell. ®

Martindale-Hubbell® has been surveying attorneys for peer review for more than 130 years. Their system begins with a rating of the “General Ethical Standards” of an attorney, to determine the person’s “adherence to professional standards of conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to the discharge of professional responsibilities.” An attorney must receive a “Very High” rating, according to this criterion, before reviewers may proceed to evaluating the attorney’s legal ability. “Legal Ability” is rated based on performance in five key areas, specifically, legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability, and legal experience.

Martindale-Hubbell then aggregates these scores to create its “Peer Review Rating.” An AV® Preeminent™ certification mark is a significant rating accomplishment, and “a testament to the fact that a lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence.”

The reviewers are anonymous attorneys and judges. They are from similar areas of practice as the lawyer being rated, who know or have worked with the attorney under consideration. There is never any payment made to lawyers and judges who participate in rating reviews. The process is a cooperative service with the Bar and the Judiciary.

Muir was reviewed according to this system. Several attorneys and judges took the opportunity to provide optional feedback. A corporate in-house counsel commented that she has an, “Intelligent, no nonsense approach to the law. Excellent character.” Another private practice attorney commented, “Jane is a zealous advocate for her clients who has the unique ability to simplify complex issues in to small, understandable concepts that allow her clients to better understand their current legal situation and the available paths to resolution.” A judge said that, “Jane is a superb lawyer in all respects. She has the ability to relate to clients and to judges in a very effective manner. Her reputation in the legal community is stellar.”
