Georgia workers’ compensation attorney and co-founder of Gerber & Holder Workers’ Compensation Attorneys, Tom Holder, has been named an AV Preeminent Rating attorney by Martindale-Hubbell for 2020. The AV Preeminent Rating is the highest award given by Martindale-Hubbell.
Martindale-Hubbell is a global network of lawyers that works to connect those in need of legal services to lawyers who can try their case. Moreover, Martindale-Hubbell has been the gold standard of attorney peer evaluations for more than a century.
Martindale-Hubbell was founded in 1868, by James B. Martindale, to help professionals (including wholesale merchants, bankers, real estate agents and manufacturers, in addition to lawyers) identify “‘one reliable law firm… in every city in the United States.’”
Moreover, the mission of Martindale-Hubbell was to help connect out-of-town businessmen with at least one reliable bank, law firm and real estate agent in each city.
Starting in 1896, Martindale-Hubbell began providing users with peer-reviewed attorneys with Peer Review Ratings and client ratings with Client Review Ratings. Client Review Ratings help lawyers refer clients, as well as lawyers who are doing personal research for legal services, find an appropriate attorney.
AV Preeminent Rating
Of the notations Martindale-Hubbell bestows upon attorneys, the AV Preeminent Rating is its highest honor.
Less than 5 percent of all lawyers have earned the award that embodies the highest level of ethical standards and legal ability.
In order to be awarded an AV Preeminent rating, attorneys are judged by their peers, clients and judges. To choose the award, attorneys are judged based on analytical capability, communication, judgment, legal experience and legal knowledge.
Tom Holder is now a two-time winner of the AV Preeminent Rating award.
“I’m honored to be awarded an AV Preeminent award,” says Holder. “This rating will only help to allow me to continue to fulfill my commitment to serve injured workers across Georgia.”
