Personal Injury Attorney Richard LaGarde Achieves AV Preeminent Rating from Martindale-Hubbell
Houston, TX (Law Firm Newswire) April 29, 2014 – Personal injury attorney Richard LaGarde has again received a rating of AV Preeminent from Martindale-Hubbell for 2014.
This rating for both ethical standards and legal ability is the highest available from Martindale-Hubbell. Mr. LaGarde first achieved an AV Preeminent rating in 1987. Attorneys earn Martindale-Hubbell ratings only after being nominated and reviewed by other attorneys and members of the judiciary.
Commenting on the recognition, Richard LaGarde said, “This rating means a lot because it’s based on the opinions of my fellow attorneys. I personally consider the ratings an important factor when I need to hire an attorney I do not know. And as the ratings are available to the public, they represent an important tool for attracting new clientele. We at LaGarde Law Firm work hard to serve our clients skillfully and ethically, and I think this rating from Martindale-Hubbell reflects that.”
Richard LaGarde is board certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in both civil trial and personal injury trial law, a distinction achieved by less than one-half of one percent of Texas attorneys. He is licensed to practice law in Texas, Louisiana and Florida. LaGarde Law Firm handles cases including auto accidents, wrongful death, oil rig injuries, oil and gas disputes, contract disputes and insurance claims. Together, husband-and-wife partners Richard LaGarde and Mary Ellis LaGarde have over 45 years of legal experience.
“At LaGarde Law Firm, we treat our clients like family,” Mr. LaGarde added. “Many of our clients come to us in times of great hardship and turmoil. In those cases, great service means more than just competent legal counsel – it means compassion and understanding.”
