Santa Clarita, California (PressExposure) February 22, 2011 -- The Mason Law Firm is managed by Mason Rashtian, an experienced litigator who helps clients injured in accidents, slip and falls, dog attacks (dog bites), burn injuries, electrocutions, food poisoning or as a result of using a defective product.
Prior to opening The Mason Law Firm, Mr. Rashtian worked as an insurance defense attorney and litigator with major law firms in Los Angeles and Orange County. So, as a lawyer, he brings a unique perspective to litigation, having litigated both sides of the issue. Mr. Rashtian is also unique in that he truly cares for the health and well-being of his clients, which is why he chose to leave defense work (where he represented the interests of insurance companies) and has instead chosen to represent those who have been injured.
Mason Rashtian has now received an "AV" Peer Review Rating with Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating awarded by Martindale-Hubbell lawyer rating directory.
Martindale-Hubbell explains its Peer Review Ratings as follows:
"A Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating reflects a combination of achieving a Very High General Ethical Standards rating and a Legal Ability numerical 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."
Martindale-Hubbell further explains its Peer Review Rating as follows:
"After a lawyer's General Ethical Standards and Legal Ability Ratings are confirmed, his/her ratings are aggregated to create an overall numeric rating for each rated Area of Practice. The numeric rating determines the Peer Review Rating, which includes a rating term and may include a Certification Mark:
AV® Preeminent (4.5 - 5.0) - An AV® certification mark 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."
Accidents are sometimes inevitable. When they happen, you need someone on your side. This is where The Mason Law Firm, managed by Mason Rashtian, comes in - "We help you get through it."
