For the 20th consecutive year, Managing Partner Brian Hennigan has received an AV Preeminent rating by Martindale-Hubbell. The AV Preeminent designation is reserved for fewer than 8 percent of attorneys nationwide, and it is widely regarded as the gold standard of attorney ratings, factoring into account both legal ability and ethical standards. The award, issued since 1887, is a designation of excellence recognized by the legal field worldwide.
According to Martindale-Hubbell, reviewers are members of the bar and judiciary from similar areas of practice as the lawyer being rated. They attest that they know or have worked with the lawyer under review, and are able to rate the lawyer’s professional ethical standards and legal ability.
Mr. Hennigan is a co-founder of Hueston Hennigan LLP. A former federal prosecutor, he served as a supervisor in the Government Fraud and Public Corruption section of the Los Angeles United States Attorney’s Office, and he has been a member of the defense bar since 1989.
