Law Weathers Named "Top-Ranked Law Firm" by Martindale-Hubbell
GRAND RAPIDS, MI, January 2, 2012 — Law Weathers has been recognized on Martindale-Hubbell’s national list of Top-Ranked Law Firms. For the first time in its 140 years of existence, Martindale-Hubbell, a prestigious legal resource, directory and review organization, has identified and named the top law firms in the nation. Each firm was included in Fortune magazine’s “Annual Investors’ Guide” which was available December 26, 2011. This issue of Fortune provides highly-reputable business recommendations for 2012.
Martindale-Hubbell considered more than 254,000 law firms in the selection process, but only 966 firms were selected nationally. Firms were chosen if at least one-third of its attorneys achieved an AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating. This status represents the highest level of achievement possible in an attorney’s legal ability and professional ethics.
“Law Weathers is honored to receive this recognition,” commented Bob Buchanan, President of Law Weathers. “We are proud to be included among the country’s top AV Preeminent law firms and we look forward to continuing to provide outstanding legal representation for our clients in West Michigan.”
