Martindale-Hubbell began in 1868 as one man’s vision to provide business men with the address of “one reliable law firm…in every city in the United States.” From its start as a simple list, Martindale-Hubbell has evolved into a leading global network of over one million lawyers and a portfolio of websites and tools designed to connect lawyers and buyers of legal services.
In existence for almost nearly as long – since 1896 – the more than 1 million Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ and Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review Ratings are recognized as the gold standard in attorney ratings. Lawyers seeking to refer a client, as well as individuals researching lawyers for their own legal needs, use these ratings and reviews to identify, evaluate and select the most appropriate lawyer for their legal issue.
Read Martindale-Hubbell’s page about how they determine ratings for peer reviews and client reviews.
