Webb Sanders & Williams Rings in New Year with AV Rating by Martindale-Hubbell

Finding a reputable legal advisor is a top need for business owners and consumers. In today’s world, consumers rely on word-of-mouth and online ratings more than ever. When they need to retain the services of a law firm in a specific field or geographic location, Martindale-Hubbell has been the trusted name in attorney ratings for more than 100 years. 

The AV Preeminent rating is the highest peer rating standard that Martindale-Hubbell offers, and the award is reserved for lawyers who represent their clients with the highest ethical behavior and professional ability. Individual attorneys are rated by their peers (lawyers and judges) on a scale from 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest) in five different categories, including:

  • Legal Knowledge
  • Analytical Capabilities
  • Judgment
  • Communication Ability
  • Legal Experience


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. Martindale-Hubbell reports only 10% of attorneys receive this top rating.


Both Dan Webb and Wayne Williams, members of Webb Sanders & Williams, have received the AV Preeminent rating. 

As a firm, we’d like to congratulate both Webb and Williams on their continued reputation as two of the most knowledgeable and ethical attorneys in their areas of practice.
