Congratulations to Herndon lawyer Doug Landau, founder and principal of the firm Abrams Landau, Ltd., for receiving Martindale-Hubbell’s AV Preeminent® peer review rating*, the highest rating possible.
Being selected as a ‘2013 Top Rated Lawyer in Personal Injury Law’ is quite an honor for Doug because of the way Martindale-Hubbell calculates its ratings. An attorney’s ranking is based on feedback received from his or her peers in the areas of ethical conduct, legal knowledge and experience, problem-solving, judgment, and communication skills.
“Knowing that my peers hold me in high professional regard is important,” says Doug. “There are plenty of good lawyers out there, but also some not-so-good. I encourage anyone looking for a lawyer to do their homework; find an attorney who has garnered the respect of his or her peers. Finding a lawyer who actually goes to court, as opposed to simply advertising that they do, and actually seeing that lawyer ‘in action.’ Does the lawyer teach other lawyers, give back to the community and have an experienced trial team ? These are the important questions.”
An AV® Preeminent™ rating is considered to be the pinnacle of professional achievement for attorneys.
*Martindale-Hubbell is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell Ratings fall into two categories – legal ability and general ethical standards.
