Active in both, public and private sectors, and serving as officers of professional, political and community organizations and governance boards and committees, our attorneys are particularly alert to changes in the law, an added benefit for our clients. As a result of our attorneys’ active civic and political involvement, we are also sensitive to local changes and trends in the community.
Our attorneys have distinguished themselves as authors, lecturers, and instructors and are among select lawyers listed in Martindale-Hubbell’s Bar Register of Pre-Eminent Lawyers and Super Lawyers, recognized for professional excellence and the highest standards of conduct, ethics, reliability, and diligence. Choosing the right attorney can be a challenge, however, Narvid Scott removes the uncertainty of making the correct choice because our firm and counsel are recognized as being in the top one half of one percent and the top five percent of lawyers in Los Angeles and across the country.
The “AV Preeminent” rating held by our firm and my Michael B. Scott and Michael J. Narvid individually is awarded to only approximately five percent of attorneys and is the highest rating offered by the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory. The AV Preeminent rating is awarded by other lawyers and judges who have personal knowledge of the abilities of the rated lawyer. The process is anonymous and Martindale-Hubbell selects the lawyers and judges who make the peer review. Only those lawyers with the highest ethical standards and professional abilities are awarded this honor by their legal and judicial peers. In 2015, both Michael B. Scott and Michael J. Narvid were recognized as Southern California’s Top AV Rated Lawyers of 2015. The AV rating is established by Martindale-Hubbell, a distinguished company that has long set the standard for legal ratings.
