Backus Receives Top Martindale Hubbell Rating

Leland “Gene” Backus, receives AV® Preeminent™ 5.0 out of 5 Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating.

(PRWEB) March 1, 2010 -- BACKUS • CARRANZA, a Las Vegas-based law firm with a reputation for handling complex litigation, recently announced that President and Senior Shareholder Leland Eugene “Gene” Backus had received an AV® Preeminent™ 5.0 out of 5 Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating.

The ratings reflect the anonymous opinions of members of the Bar and the judiciary and attest to a lawyer's legal ability and professional ethics. To be rated, lawyers must meet the "very high" General Ethical Standards Rating and must also be rated on their legal ability. The rating includes one of three certification marks: AV® Preeminent™ (requiring 4.5-5.0 points), BV® Distinguished™ (3.0-4.4 points) or Rated (1.0-2.9 points). Legal ability ratings are rated on a scale of 1 to 5 (with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest), based on legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability and legal experience.

“I was very pleased to receive Martindale’s top peer rating,” says Backus. “During my career, I’ve enjoyed serving as chief trial counsel or regional counsel on some of the largest complex cases in the country, including the MGM Fire Litigation, Agent Orange, asbestos, Dupont Hotel Fire Litigation, the Pepcon Plant Explosion, Bone Screw Litigation, tobacco, diet drug and other medical/pharmaceutical complex and class action litigation. I like to specialize in highly complex and involved cases where my experience and capability as a litigator can be put into play. But, to have been named AV Preeminent, as well as to have received a 5.0 certification mark by my peers, is truly icing on the cake.”

BACKUS • CARRANZA –a law firm holding an unparalleled reputation for handling complex cases – prides itself on getting results for corporate clients involved in construction, professional liability, insurance litigation, health care litigation and transactional matters. The firm represents hotels, general contractors, construction managers, subcontractors, design professionals, lawyers, physicians, hospitals, medical device manufacturers, product manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies and insurance companies.
