In its first ever national law firm rankings, Martindale Hubbell announced that Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith & Davis LLP (GRS&D) was recognized as one of the top ranked law firms in the United States based on the percentage of its lawyers who have received Martindale’s “AV” rating, the highest category. In fact, 42 GRS&D lawyers have been rated "AV" based on evaluations by their peers.

To receive an AV rating, a lawyer must be admitted to the bar for a minimum of 3 years. For over a century, Martindale-Hubbell has furnished peer reviewed ratings of lawyers with regard to their ethics and professional capabilities.

Of 254,000 firms that have been rated by Martindale Hubbell, there were 965 U.S. firms selected for the “Top Ranked Law Firm” list. GRS&D is one of only 19 of these firms that are in New Jersey.

This is the first time Martindale has ranked law firms nationally and they have chosen to present the listing in Fortune magazine’s widely read “2012 Investor’s Guide” issue on December 26th. In addition to reaching Fortune’s 4.4 million readers, the section will also be featured online at Martindale.com, law.com, and CNNMoney.com

For nearly 100 years GRS&D has earned the trust of clients by helping them succeed in their business and personal lives in New Jersey. While the firm serves large regional, national and multi-national clients doing business in New Jersey, the firm has a mid-market business focus. GRS&D has handled some of the very largest business and real estate transactions in the state. Likewise, the Litigation Department has handled major cases for New Jersey, regional and national clients, in state and federal courts, before administrative and regulatory agencies, and arbitrators and mediators. Firm attorneys also represent individuals in tax and estate planning and family law matters.
