Attorney Donald D. Vanarelli Celebrates 15 Years of Highest Possible Attorney Rating

Donald D. Vanarelli, a Westfield, NJ attorney whose primary area of practice is Elder Law and Special Needs Planning, is celebrating 15 Years of being rated AV Preeminent

Westfield, NJ – May 7, 2015 – Attorney  Donald D. Vanarelli announces his 15th Anniversary of having been recommended by peers and selected by Martindale-Hubbell for their highest possible rating: the AV Preeminent rating. Less than 1% of lawyers have achieved this impressive milestone.

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 peers: members of the bar and the judiciary.

For more than 130 years, only lawyers had access to Martindale-Hubbell attorney ratings. Lawyers relied on the AV Preeminent Rating while searching for their own expert attorneys. Now, thanks to websites such as and, the public can use this trusted rating as an important part of the process in choosing the right attorney for their needs.

LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell’s Peer Review Rating and Client Review Services commented on  Donald D. Vanarelli’s anniversary: “Being honored by your peers and ultimately selected for the AV Preeminent Rating is a significant achievement for any attorney – only achieved by about 5% of lawyers. Donald D. Vanarelli has joined an even more exclusive group by maintaining this rating for 15 years. This is an achievement certainly worthy of special recognition. Congratulations!”
