Mr. Leonard A Sloane
Dear Mr. Sloane—
Personal And Confidential
I am pleased to inform you that you have been awarded the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory’s highest accolade— an AV rating. This is as a result of an extensive, confidential review conducted among the legal profession in your community.
Your AV rating is important because it is a public confirmation of the status you have achieved as a highly respected, ethical member of the Bar. It signifies that your legal abilities are of the very highest standard and that your professional ethics and conduct are above question.
You now join a select group of attorneys who have been recognized by their peers for their legal expertise and professional reputations. Your rating will be included in the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory in print, on CD-ROM and on-line through the LEXIS service.
Martindale-Hubbell has gone to considerable lengths to confirm the validity of your rating. To maintain the accuracy of ratings, periodic reevaluations are conducted.
If you have any questions about your rating or other aspects of Martindale-Hubbell’s services, please do not hesitate to give us a call. Your comments, suggestions and ideas will help us better serve you in the future.
Our congratulations to you on your new rating.
Vice President, Ratings
