Martindale-Hubbell has recognized William E. Benner with its prestigious peer review rating of AV in Zoning, Planning and Land Use, and Real Estate.
The AV Preeminent is the highest rating a lawyer can achieve in legal ability and ethical standards. The select attorneys who have received the AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell are those who have been recognized at the highest level of professional excellence by their peers. Martindale-Hubbell seeks evaluations of lawyers and other members of the bar and the judiciary to assess their colleagues’ ethical standards and legal ability in a specific area of practice.
One peer who participated in the evaluation said of Benner, “He is one of the ‘go to’ land use attorneys in this area.” Another peer concluded his evaluation by commenting: “Mr. Benner is regarded as a premiere attorney in the areas of land use and zoning, and has served as a mentor and role model for other attorneys in the Bucks County and Montgomery County areas of Pennsylvania. He is eminently qualified in the law and regarded by all in having the highest ethical standards.”
With help from LexisNexis, Martindale-Hubbell facilitates secure online surveys of lawyers across multiple jurisdictions and geographic locations, in similar areas of practice as the lawyer being rated. The peer reviews reflect a combination of achieving a very high general ethical standards rating and a legal ability numerical rating. These reviews help buyers of legal services identify and select the most appropriate lawyer for a specific task at hand.
