West Palm Beach Attorney Ron D. Herman has been awarded an AV® Preeminent™ Rating by Martindale-Hubbell®. This is the highest peer-review rating provided by the well-known national rating service. Receiving this rating level indicates that the attorney has been ranked by his professional peers as having the highest levels of legal ability and ethical standards. Attorney Herman, who is Managing Partner of Herman Law, P.A., received the rating for the practice areas of criminal law and commercial law.
Receiving an AV® Rating is a prestigious honor, as it is awarded to less than five percent of lawyers in the United States. The rating process requires other members of the bar and the judiciary to conduct extensive evaluations of the attorney who is being rated. Lawyers located in various jurisdictions and geographic areas (and in similar practice areas to the attorney evaluated) are asked to assess the individual being rated in multiple areas. They first rate the individual in the areas of general ethical standards. A candidate who is considered to have “Very High” ethical standards is then rated in the area of legal ability, which takes into account legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability and legal experience.
Ratings are given on a scale of 1 to 5, with scores of 4.5 to 5 resulting in the highest rating tier of AV® Preeminent™. After being evaluated by his peers, Mr. Herman received an AV® Preeminent 4.9 Rating. Through this rating, Mr. Herman has proven himself as a legal professional with strong professional values and abilities.
