KAGAN LAW GROUP Receives “AV” Peer Review Rating™ for Jonathan P. Kagan from Martindale-Hubbell®

Martindale-Hubbell has recognized Jonathan P. Kagan as “AV” rated which is its highest rating attorneys can receive from their peers.  This rating signifies the highest level of professional ethics and professional excellence for Mr. Kagan’s legal knowledge, communication, skills and ethical standards.

Only lawyers with the highest ethical standards and professional ability receive a Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating.  The Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings evaluates lawyers based on the anonymous opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary, including both those who are rated and those who are not.

Martindale-Hubbell conducts secure online Peer Review Ratings surveys of lawyers across multiple jurisdictions and geographic locations, in similar areas of practice as the lawyer being rated. Reviewers are instructed to assess their colleagues’ general ethical standards and legal ability in a specific area of practice.

The confidentiality, objectivity and complete independence of the ratings process are what have made the program a unique and credible evaluation tool for members of the legal profession.  The legal community values the accuracy of lawyer peer review ratings because they are determined by their peers – the people who are best suited to assess the legal ability and professional ethics of their colleagues.

In this highly competitive environment for legal services, the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating is often one of the only means to differentiate lawyers who are otherwise very comparable in their credentials.  This is important on a variety of levels – from the in-house counsel trying to determine which one of his outside law firms should be assigned a new matter to the private practice attorney seeking to refer a case to another lawyer with the appropriate expertise in a specific area of practice.

Kagan Law Group has six highly skilled attorneys that handle business, employment, and real estate matters, as well as civil litigation in all levels of the State and Federal courts.
