According to the prestigious Martindale-Hubbell legal profession directory, Louisiana lawyers and judges have ranked local attorney J. Parker Layrisson at the highest possible level of professional excellence.
Asked to rate Layrisson’s legal ability and professional ethics, his peers bestowed the prestigious AV rating upon him. The AV rating is the highest peer ranking available to attorneys. It applies to lawyers regarded for “very high” ethical standards and “very high to preeminent” legal abilities. According to Martindale-Hubbell’s website, Parker Layrisson is Ponchatoula’s only AV-rated lawyer.
“I am honored that lawyers and judges I respect think this highly of me,” said Layrisson.
Martindale-Hubbell is the authoritative resource for information on the worldwide legal profession. With a history spanning 140 years, Martindale-Hubbell is powered by a database of over one million lawyers and law firms in over 160 countries. Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings attest to a lawyer’s legal ability and professional ethics and reflect the confidential opinions of members of the bar and judiciary.
Typically, lawyers must practice for a minimum of ten years before receiving an AV rating. However, in light of his high peer reviews, Martindale-Hubbell made an exception for Layrisson, who began practicing law in 2002.
“My colleagues have humbled me with their vote of confidence,” said Layrisson. “I will continue working tirelessly on behalf of my clients to justify this honor.”
