Locher Pavelka Dostal Braddy & Hammes, LLC has been recognized as one of the 2013 U.S. Top Ranked Law Firms by LexisNexis® Martindale-Hubbell® and Fortune magazine. Compiled by LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell, the list (available here) includes 2,421 firms located across the nation. To be eligible as a 2013 U.S. Top Ranked Law Firm, the firm must have a minimum of 10 attorneys and at least 33% of their attorneys must have achieved an AV Preeminent® rating.
AV Preeminent® is the highest possible Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating designation. It indicates that the individual attorney is an established practicing lawyer whose local peers have observed him or her to be "Very High to Preeminent" in legal ability and to have "Very High" ethical standards.
More than 254,000 U.S. law firms were considered in the selection process, but less than one-half of one percent of firms across the nation made the final cut.
In addition to its publication in the December 2012 Special 2013 Investor’s Guide issue of Fortune magazine, the Top Ranked Law Firms list also appeared in the January 2013 editions of ALM’s award winning publications Corporate Counsel and The American Lawyer. It also appears on martindale.com® and CNNMoney.com.
