Martindale-Hubbell peer-review rated attorneys are judged for their General Ethical Standards and Legal Abilities. The General Ethical Standards rating represents adherence to professional standards of conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to the discharge of professional responsibilities. The Legal Ability ratings are based on performance in five key areas including legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability and legal experience.

Once a lawyer’s General Ethical Standards and Legal Ability Ratings are confirmed, his/her ratings are combined to create an overall numeric rating for each rated area of practice. The numeric rating determines the peer-review rating, which includes a rating term and may include a Certification Mark: Preeminent™ (4.5-5.0).

The AV Judicial Edition Preeminent rating exemplifies the professional and top-quality legal representation Mr. McDonough and all of the attorneys at ATC Law provide for their clients. For more information or to request a case evaluation, call our office at 770-822-0900.
