AV® Preeminent™ rating (5.0/5.0) from Martindale-Hubbell®

Steven M. Goldberg, earned and maintains an AV® Preeminent™ rating (5.0/5.0) from Martindale-Hubbell®. For more than 130 years, lawyers have relied on the Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent® rating while searching for their own expert attorneys. 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 their peers — members of the bar and the judiciary. The Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent Rating is a credential highly valued and sought after in the legal world. It used to be a sort of secret among attorneys who used the rating as a first screen when they needed to hire a lawyer they did not personally know. The Rating is a great way for anyone — lawyers or lay people — to use to screen lawyers. Steven is proud of this distinction and remains committed to providing his clients with the highest level of service and expertise required to maintain such preeminent standing in the legal community.
