Erik S. Maurer Receives Peer Review Rating™ from LexisNexis® Martindale-Hubbell®


Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Banner & Witcoff, Ltd., today announced it has received notification from LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell that Erik S. Maurer has received a Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating.

Mr. Maurer was given an “AV” rating from his peers, which means that he was deemed to have very high professional ethics and preeminent legal ability. Only lawyers with the highest ethical standards and professional ability receive a Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating.

The Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings evaluates lawyers in the United States and Canada based on the anonymous opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary, including both those who are rated and those who are not. The first review to establish a lawyer’s rating usually occurs three years after his or her first admission to the Bar.

LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell conducts secure online Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings surveys of lawyers across multiple jurisdictions and geographic locations, in similar areas of practice as the lawyer being rated. Reviewers are instructed to assess their colleagues’ general ethical standards and legal ability in a specific area of practice.

The confidentiality, objectivity and complete independence of the ratings process are what have made the program a unique and credible evaluation tool for members of the legal profession. The legal community values the accuracy of lawyer peer review ratings because they are determined by their peers — the people who are best suited to assess the legal ability and professional ethics of their colleagues.
