PEMBROKE PINES, Florida—The Divorce & Mediation Law Firm | Cabanas Law Firm announces that Managing Attorney & Founder Sergio Cabanas has received the Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Rating. ™
Cabanas received an AV® rating from his peers, the highest rating available to any lawyer, for high professional ethics and preeminent legal ability. Only lawyers with the highest ethical standards and professional ability receive a Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Rating.
The Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings evaluate lawyers based on the anonymous opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary, including those who are rated and those who are not. The first review to establish a lawyer’s rating usually occurs three years after his/her first admission to the Bar.
Martindale-Hubbell® conducts secure online Peer Review Ratings surveys of lawyers across multiple jurisdictions and geographic locations in similar practice areas as the lawyer being rated. Reviewers are instructed to assess their colleagues’ general ethical standards and legal ability in a specific practice area.
The Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ help buyers of legal services identify, evaluate, and select the most appropriate lawyer for a specific task at hand. The confidentiality, objectivity, and complete independence of the ratings process have made the program a unique and credible evaluation tool for members of the legal profession. The legal community values the accuracy of lawyer peer review ratings because they are determined by their peers – the people best suited to assess their colleagues’ legal ability and professional ethics.
Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings were created in 1887 as an objective tool that would attest to a lawyer’s ability and professional ethics, based on the confidential opinions of other lawyers and judges who have worked with the lawyers they are evaluating,
“I’m honored to have received such a distinguished award from my peers and this outstanding organization,” says Cabanas. “I founded Divorce & Mediation Law Firm | Cabanas Law Firm in 2006 to provide divorce and family legal services and estate planning to protect my clients and ensure they have planned well for their newly single future.

Martindale-Hubbell®’s (www.martindale.com) 140-year-plus history began in 1868, when lawyer and businessman James B. Martindale first published The Martindale Directory. Its stated purpose was “to furnish to lawyers, bankers, wholesale merchants, manufacturers, real estate agents, and all others…the address of one reliable law firm, one reliable bank, and one reliable real estate office in every city in the United States.”
By 1896, The Martindale Directory included the basic information that still appears in our lawyer and law firm Profiles, as well as ratings and a section on foreign lawyers and firms.
In 1930, the Martindale Company purchased the publishing rights to Hubbell’s Legal Directory, which contained a digest of state laws, court calendars, and a selective list of lawyers and firms. The following year marked the first edition of the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory, a two-volume set that combined the features of both predecessor publications.
Today, Martindale-Hubbell® offers solutions for both professional and consumer markets. Our online destinations contain profiles for over one million lawyers and firms in the United States, Canada, and 160 other countries, serving as a fundamental legal resource and marketing tool.
