Louisville Magazine Recognizes Pat McElhone as One of Louisville's Top Lawyers
To compile this year's roster of top Louisville Lawyers we invited Martindale-Hubbell, the company that has long set the standard for peer-reviewed ratings, to share their list of local attorneys who have reached the highest level of professional excellence.

For more than a century, lawyers have relied on the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory as a guide to the worldwide legal profession. Thousands of people use the directory every day to find local attorneys, validate their credentials and select firms that provide services for their personal and professional legal needs, The Martindale-Hubbell Legal Network is powered by a database of over one million lawyers and law firms in more than 160 countries.

Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings are driven by lawyers and members of the judiciary who receive invitations from Martindale-Hubbell, in electronic, "eConfidential" form or via the mail, to provide reviews on a lawyer or lawyers of whom they have personal knowledge. Peer Review Rated attorneys are not required to have a paid listing in the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory to be rated. These ratings reflect the confidential opinions of members of the bar and judiciary.

Pat McElhone has been awarded the AV® Peer Review Rating — An AV® certification mark is a significant rating accomplishment - a testament to the fact that his peers rank him at the highest level of professional excellence.

Buyers of legal services, as well as those making referrals, consider Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings invaluable when evaluating a lawyer. Whether choosing between two equally qualified candidates or looking for counsel in another jurisdiction, lawyers and consumers need to have confidence in the individual under consideration. Using ratings, they can select counsel with superior ethics, as well as the desired level of professional experience.
