Northern Michigan’s A-List

For more than a century, lawyers have relied on Martindale-Hubbell® as an entry point to the worldwide legal profession with a database of more than a million lawyers and law firms from more than 160 countries. Thousands of people come to the interactive martindale.com and lawyers.com sites every day to network, to read written information and watch video content on legal matters or attorneys, and to find and select lawyers or law firms to provide services for their personal and professional legal needs.

Martindale-Hubbell’s trademarked Peer Review Ratings help users select the attorneys named on the following pages. To create a list of top rated Northern Michigan lawyers, LexisNexis reviewed its comprehensive database of Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rated attorneys to identify those from the region who have been rated by their peers as both highly ethical and preeminent in their legal abilities. The list reflects attorneys who received an “AV” rating—the highest Peer Review Rating available. These lawyers can be found online at lawyers.com and martindale.com.

Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings are objective and driven by lawyers and members of the judiciary who receive invitations from Martindale-Hubbell, either in electronic “eConfidential” form or via the mail, to provide reviews of a lawyer or law firm whom they have personal knowledge. Peer Review Rated attorneys are not required to have a paid membership for Martindale-Hubbell to be rated. These ratings reflect the confidential opinions of members of the bar and judiciary. They appear in all formats of the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory, in the online listings on martindale.com, on the LexisNexis service, on CD-ROM and in print.
