Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PressExposure) June 18, 2013 -- Michael A. Gottlieb, a Fort Lauderdale criminal lawyer whose areas of practice include violent crimes defense, drug crimes defense and criminal law in the state of Florida, has earned the AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell. This is the highest possible rating from the organization and reflects outstanding achievement in terms of legal ability and professional ethics.
Legal ability ratings are based on attorney performance in five areas: legal knowledge, or the attorney's familiarity with laws governing his or her area of practice; analytical capabilities, or the attorney's creativity in analyzing legal issues and applying technical knowledge of the law; communication ability, or the attorney's ability to communicate with credibility and persuasiveness; legal experience, or the lawyer's degree of experience in his or her area of practice and judgement, or the lawyer's demonstration of salient factors driving the outcome of a particular issue or case.
Michael A. Gottlieb and his law firm have held the coveted AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell for over ten years.
The Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent rating has been used for over 130 years to help attorneys find their own expert lawyers, although this rating is now available for consumers to view on martindale.com and lawyers.com to find experienced and reliable legal representation. The rating is available only after a lawyer has been reviwed and recommended by peers, who are fellow members of the bar and the judiciary.
Michael A. Gottlieb is a Broward criminal lawyer who has been a practicing criminal defense lawyer since 1993. Before joining the Broward County Public Defender's Office, he worked as a legal assistant for the Broward County Sheriff's Office and formed his own law firm after serving as Assistant Public Defender for three years.
Mr. Gottlieb has handled thousands of cases and tried over 100 criminal jury trials to verdict, most recently obtaining acquittals in State v Green for Attempted Murder in the First Degree of a Law Enforcement Officer and State v Johnson for Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.
