Trust doesn’t just happen. It’s something that is earned over a long period of time.
We first opened our doors 25 years ago. We understood then, as we do now, that the most important four qualities a lawyer and law firm can have are ability, expertise, reputation, and trust. Now, a quarter of a century later, our daily efforts to earn a client’s trust are well documented for you to review and independently analyze.
Please keep in mind that the following reviews and ratings cannot be paid for. In almost every instance, we were not even aware that an award, review or rating was taking place until after it was made.
Having said that, the favorable comments, awards and ratings our clients, other lawyers, and third party rating services have been kind enough to share truly do mean the world to us. We will continue to work hard each day to live up to these honors and to continue to gain the sincere and authentic trust of our clients.
After all, when it’s all said and done, we believe that without trust, you have nothing at all.
Here is some good independent information you may want to take a close look at…
Recognitions, Ratings, and Awards by Independent Third Party Organizations
Top “AV” Rated by Martindale-Hubbell
Each partner at Jackson & Wilson is a top “AV” rated trial lawyer. An “AV” rating identifies a lawyer and firm with very high to preeminent legal ability and is the highest reflection of expertise, experience, integrity and overall professional excellence. Martindale-Hubbell ratings are established by attorneys for attorneys and as it states, “clearly indicates a demonstration of the highest professional and ethical standards.”
Listed in the Prestigious Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers
The Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers certifies that Jackson & Wilson has once again been recognized for high professional legal standards and ethics in the latest Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers.
The Martindale-Hubbell Bar Register™ is limited to only the most distinguished law practices; those that have achieved the AV® rating in the Martindale-Hubbell® Law Directory. The “A” signifies the highest level of legal ability, while the “V” denotes “very high” adherence to the professional standards of conduct, ethics, reliability and diligence.
2009 “Top Gun” Trial Lawyer of the Year
Each year the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association (OCTLA) recognizes one or more trial lawyers for their work, trial skills, legal ethics and significant accomplishments. In 2009, OCTLA awarded, Jon Mitchell “Mitch” Jackson, as one of Orange County’s 2009 “TOP GUN” Trial Lawyers of the Year for his accomplishments in governmental entity litigation and trial work (wrongful death case).
The National Trial Lawyers
This “invitation only” organization is composed of The Top 100 Trial Lawyers from each state. Membership is obtained through special invitation and is extended only to those attorneys who exemplify superior qualifications of leadership, reputation, influence, stature, and profile as civil plaintiff or criminal defense trial lawyers. It is the mission of The National Trial Lawyers to promote excellence in the legal profession through practical educational programs, networking opportunities, and legal publications that deal with current issues facing The National Trial Lawyer.
Million Dollar Advocates Forum (multiple time members)
Established in 1993, the Million Dollar Advocates Forum (which includes the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum) is a prestigious group of trial lawyers in the United States. Membership is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. Fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members. Our senior partners are multiple time members.
Avvo Rating- “Superb” 10.0 out of 10.0
The Avvo Rating represents an independent, third party evaluation of a lawyer’s ability, reputation and general background experience. The rating is calculated using a mathematical model developed by Avvo which considers the information shown in a lawyer’s profile, including a lawyer’s years in practice, disciplinary history, professional achievements and industry recognition – all factors that, in Avvo’s opinion, are relevant to assessing a lawyer’s qualifications.
Southern California Super Lawyer
Year after year, one or more partners are consistently named a “Southern California Super Lawyer”. In selecting attorneys for Super Lawyers, Law & Politics employs a rigorous, multiphase process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with third party research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis.
The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Since Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in the selection of a lawyer, we limit the list to attorneys who can be hired and retained by the public, i.e., lawyers in private practice and Legal Aid attorneys.
