Attorney Donald D. Vanarelli is proud to announce that he was awarded an “AV Preeminent” rating from Martindale-Hubbell, an acknowledgment that he achieved the highest level of professional excellence. From the Martindale-Hubbell website: “For more than 130 years, lawyers have relied on the AV Preeminent rating when searching for their own expert attorneys. The Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent rating is the highest possible rating for an attorney for both ethical standards and legal ability. This rating represents the pinnacle of professional excellence. It is achieved only after an attorney has been reviewed and recommended by his peers and members of the bar and the judiciary.”  The “AV Preeminent” rating is awarded to less than 5% of all lawyers across the United States.

The “AV Preeminent” designation signifies that Don has been rated by judges and fellow attorneys as having attained the highest level of excellence in legal ability and ethical standards. The Legal Ability rating indicates professional ability in a specific area of practice and is based on five key areas: legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability, and legal experience. The Ethical Standards rating denotes adherence to professional standards of conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence, and other criteria relevant to the discharge of professional responsibilities.

The “AV Preeminent” rating is a nationally-recognized acknowledgment of Don’s accomplishments and skills as an attorney, and places him among the elite practitioners in the country. Our law firm congratulates Don on this significant professional achievement.
