Join Goodsill Anderson Quinn & Stifel in congratulating Michael J. O’Malley for being named AV Preeminent Attorney by Martindale-Hubbell for 2022. This is a tremendous endorsement by both his peers and the judiciary.

For more than 130 years, Martindale-Hubbell has been evaluating attorneys for their strong legal ability and high ethical standards through a Peer Review system.  Prior to the 1887, Martindale’s American Law Directory, was the first publication to provide ratings.  In the past there was no way to know if a lawyer was trustworthy, ethical, or skilled in the field of law.

Today Martindale-Hubbell continues to provide verified ratings for attorneys based on their legal ability and ethical standards as judged by their peers and based on reviews from their clients. While the criteria and format of the Peer Review Rating system has evolved Martindale-Hubbell’s goal remains the same which is to help keep the public informed when deciding to do business with an attorney or law firm.

An “AV” rating means that an attorney has reached the highest level of professional excellence and is recognized for their skill and integrity.  An AV Preeminent rating is the highest level of professional excellence for legal expertise, communication skills, and ethical standards by their peers.

“We are proud to honor Michael J. O’Malley and the important contributions he has made to Goodsill.” said Alan Fujimoto, Partner.
