VanHeyningen has been ranked Preeminent™ 5.0/5.0 by her clients. An AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rating is an outstanding achievement and demonstrates that a lawyer has earned the highest rating available for their legal ability and professional ethics. Martindale-Hubbell® facilitates secure online Peer Review Ratings surveys of lawyers across multiple jurisdictions and geographic locations, in similar areas of practice as the lawyer being rated. Reviewers are asked to assess their colleagues' general ethical standards and legal ability in a specific area of practice. Martindale-Hubbell® has been facilitating Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ for more than 130 years. In more recent years, client ratings were added to provide prospective clients with a full view of a lawyer’s professional credentials. The Client Review Ratings program was established to address the growing needs of buyers of legal services to have feedback from other buyers of legal services about the lawyers and firms they have retained.
