Carol W. Wood enjoys an AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory.
The 140-year history of the Martindale-Hubbell began with two separate publications:
The Martindale Directory was first published in 1868 by James B. Martindale, a lawyer and businessman. Its purpose was “to furnish to lawyers, bankers, wholesale merchants, manufacturers, real estate agents, and all others…the address of one reliable law firm, one reliable bank, and one reliable real estate office in every city in the United States…”.
In 1930 the Martindale Company purchased the publishing rights to Hubbell’s Legal Directory. This Directory consisted of three parts: a digest of the collected laws of each state; court calendars; and a selective list of lawyers and firms.
The Martindale-Hubbell Ratings provide a review of a lawyer or law firm to aid buyers and referrers of legal services in choosing the right lawyer or firm for their legal issue.
