Awards + Recognitions

Holland Law LLP is proud to announce that our founder, Chris Holland, received Martindale-Hubbell®’s most prestigious designation: AV Preeminent.

While Chris has received awards from this organization over the years, often getting their highest (“A”) rating for Legal Ability, as well as Outstanding or other high marks for his ethical conduct of various cases, this was the first time he earned the designation AV Preeminent. This means he received the highest-level peer reviews in both the Legal Ability and Ethics components of their system.

According to Martindale-Hubbell®, “An elite group of approximately 10 percent of all attorneys holds an AV Preeminent Rating, a designation trusted worldwide by buyers and referrers of legal services.”

Martindale-Hubbell®’s Peer Review Ratings™ are an objective indicator of a lawyer’s high ethical standards and professional ability, generated from evaluations of lawyers by other members of the bar and the judiciary in the U.S. and Canada. Lawyers are nominated and reviewed by their peers anonymously to ensure honest and complete answers.

Since the 1800’s, Martindale-Hubbell® has helped to distinguish the country’s elite attorneys, and Holland Law LLP is pleased that one of our own has been recognized with the highest AV Preeminent Rating this year.
