With roots dating all the way back to 1868, Martindale-Hubbell® has established itself as the “gold standard” in legal directories and attorney ratings. Not surprisingly, the esteemed legal publication has taken notice of Fry & Elder and its accomplished trial lawyers over the years. This year, all four Fry & Elder partners – Robert G “Hap” Fry Jr., James R. Elder, M. Shane Henry and Aaron D. Bundy – received the prolific AV® Preeminent Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell®.
“To be an AV-rated attorney is a big deal,” Henry said. “They (Martindale-Hubbell) have set a high standard for so long that it really is quite an honor to be regarded by your peers in this light.”
The AV® Preeminent Rating on the Martindale Hubbell® website is defined as: “The highest peer rating standard. This rating signifies that the lawyer’s reviewed peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence for their legal knowledge, communication skills and ethical standards.”
