The Fortune magazine listing of top law firms in the U.S. was compiled by LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell, using information on AV rated attorneys within a database of more than 1 million lawyers and firms. The AV Preeminent rating is driven by the confidential opinions of lawyers and members of the judiciary who provide reviews of lawyers about whom they have professional knowledge. According to Lexis Nexis Martindale-Hubbell, the rating signifies the highest standard of legal ability and is a confirmation of an individual’s status as a highly respected, ethical member of the Bar.
In addition to the firm’s rating, currently there are eight ShuffieldLowman attorneys holding the AV Preeminent designation, including Heidi W. Isenhart, Thomas F. Lang, William R. Lowman, Jr., J. Steven McDonald, Gregory W. Meier, Arthur J. Ranson III, W. Charles Shuffield and Lynne R. Wilson.
