Attorney Frederick R. (Rick) Hovde, one of the founders of Hovde Dassow + Deets LLC, the premier personal injury law firm in Indianapolis, recently received the highest possible ratings for legal excellence in two separate announcements.One of the Top Rated Attorneys in Indiana
Rick Hovde, along with his partners Boyd Hovde, Rob Dassow and Nick Deets has been included in the 2014 list of top rated attorneys in Indiana as published in Indianapolis Monthly. This distinction is given to only a very small percentage of Indianapolis’s attorneys each year.
Attorneys are only considered for inclusion in the list of top rated attorneys if they have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement across 12 indicators. Lawyers cannot buy their way onto the list. The selection process, recognized as legitimate by bar associations and courts across the United States, is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. Only attorneys who can be retained by the general public are considered. Honorees are selected annually for each state and practice area.
AV Preeminent® Rating From Martindale-Hubbell®
Additionally, Rick Hovde has earned the distinction of the AV Preeminent® rating from Martindale-Hubbell®, the highest possible rating for both ethical standards and legal ability.
For more than 130 years, lawyers have relied on the Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent® rating while searching for their own expert attorneys. Now anyone can make use of this trusted rating by looking up a lawyer’s rating on Lawyers.com or martindale.com. The Martindale-Hubbell® AV Preeminent® rating is the highest possible rating for an attorney for both ethical standards and legal ability. This rating represents the pinnacle of professional excellence. It is achieved only after an attorney has been reviewed and recommended by their peers – members of the bar and the judiciary.
These two distinctions are the most recent in a long list of accolades that Rick has received over the years for his exceptional trial advocacy. Rick is listed in Best Lawyers in America and has been recognized as an Indiana SuperLawyer since 2004.
