Rudolph Friedmann LLP Named 2013 U.S. Top Ranked Law Firm

Rudolph Friedmann LLP is pleased to announce that we have been named a 2013 U.S. Top Ranked Law Firm by LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell. This honor is awarded annually to firms with a minimum of 10 attorneys, at least 1/3 of which have achieved an AV Preeminent peer review rating. Rudolph Friedmann currently has five partners who have earned this designation: Jim Rudolph, Bob Shaer, Jon Friedmann, Mike Tracy, and Jim Singer.

Martindale-Hubbell is a one hundred and forty year old legal directory and rating service. Its peer review ratings are compiled from surveys sent directly to a lawyer’s colleagues in the legal community, who are asked to rate their peers on both ethics and legal acumen. Attorneys who meet the “Very High” criteria for ethical standards are rated from 1-5 on their legal acumen, with an AV Preeminent rating awarded to those attorneys who receive an average of 4.5 or higher.


Jim Rudolph was recently appointed to the Marblehead Zoning Board of Appeals. Several years ago, he chaired the Swampscott Zoning Board of Appeals for 5 years before he was a Swampscott Selectman. Jim also was recently elected as a Commissioner of the Essex National Heritage Commission.
