MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwired - April 20, 2017) - Attorney Michael Hupy was recently recognized as an AV Preeminent Attorney -- Judicial Edition -- a prestigious award based on review ratings of members of the judicial community. Attorney Hupy has been peer reviewed AV Preeminent Rated by Martindale-Hubbell for more than 20 years. Lawyers are surveyed on a lawyer's legal ability and ethical standards. Those survey results turn into a rating after a threshold has been achieved.
The AV Preeminent judicial rating is the gold standard of lawyer ratings -- the highest possible rating in legal ability and ethical standards -- and has been since 1887. This award is compiled from judicial opinion about an attorney and is the pinnacle of professional excellence.
Receiving this award is a sign that a lawyer has reached the highest possible standard of legal knowledge and ethical behavior in their field. It also is a reflection of opinions from both the judiciary and the bar.
Recognized with a Litigator Award in 2015, Attorney Hupy was also named a Wisconsin Super Lawyer. Over his decades of practice, he has been involved with several lawyer organizations and is a member of the National Trial Lawyers, the American Association of Justice and a member of the Million and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Additionally, Attorney Hupy is past president of the Wisconsin Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and a member of the Wisconsin Association of Justice Board of Directors.
