Martindale Hubble has listed Matt Schad as one of its “preeminent” lawyers for 2021. The organization is the only attorney ranking service to be officially recognized by the Indiana Bar Association. Matt was rated “AV” which is the highest possible rating for both skill and ethical reputation. Other lawyers and judges directly evaluate their peers in the Martindale rating system.
“For more than 130 years, Martindale-Hubbell has been evaluating attorneys for their strong legal ability and high ethical standards through a Peer Review Rating system. Prior to the 1887 edition of Martindale’s American Law Directory, which was the first publication to provide such ratings to attorneys, there was no way of truly knowing if the lawyer you were considering to do business with was trustworthy, ethical, or skilled in the legal field.
Today – Martindale-Hubbell continues to provide verified ratings for attorneys based not only on their legal ability and ethical standards as judged by their peers, but also based on reviews from their clients. While the criteria and format of the Peer Review Rating system has evolved since the 1800’s – the goal of Martindale-Hubbell ratings remains the same: to help keep the public informed when making the decision to do business with an attorney or law firm.”
