Congratulations to Kimberly Cutler, who has earned the highest possible rating by Martindale Hubbell! This rating is "AV Preeminent". AV Preeminent is a significant rating accomplishment - a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence.
Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings are an objective indicator of a lawyer's high ethical standards and professional ability, generated from evaluations of lawyers by other members of the bar and the judiciary in the United States and Canada. Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings reflect a combination of achieving a Very High General Ethical Standards rating and a Legal Ability numerical rating. A threshold number of responses is required to achieve a rating.
The General Ethical Standards rating denotes adherence to professional standards of conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to the discharge of professional responsibilities. Those lawyers who meet the "Very High" criteria of General Ethical Standards can proceed to the next step in the ratings process - Legal Ability. Legal Ability is further subcategorized by ones legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability, and legal experience.
Prior to this rating Kimberly became an Ohio State Bar Association "Certified Specialist" in Estate Planning, Trusts and Probate Law.
This rating is a reflection of what we at Bridges, Jillisky, Weller & Gullifer, LLC already knew. Kim Cutler is a distinguished lawyer, who holds herself to a higher standard of excellence and service.
