Chris Fialko has earned the 2022 AV Preeminent Rating, which is the highest possible rating in both legal ability and ethics through Martindale-Hubbell.

The Martindale-Hubbell© Peer Review Ratings have been an important part of Martindale-Hubbell’s services to the legal community since 1887. The ratings process, which evaluates lawyers both in the U.S. and Canada, is solely based on peer review.

Chris Fialko was recently named the Best Lawyers® 2022 Criminal Defense: General Practice “Lawyer of the Year” in Charlotte.

As Best Lawyers describes the recognition: The best lawyers know who the best lawyers are. 

Just last year, Chris Fialko was named the Best Lawyers® 2021 Criminal Defense: White-Collar “Lawyer of the Year” in Charlotte. And in 2016, Fialko was named the Best Lawyers® 2016 Criminal Defense: Non-White Collar “Lawyer of the Year” in Charlotte.

He is one of very few attorneys who have been voted this recognition by his peers in both categories and more than once within 10 years.

On November 5, 2020, Fialko Law, PLLC received a Metro Tier One ranking in the 2021 Edition of U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” in Criminal Defense: General Practice and White-Collar in Charlotte.

U.S. News explains, “This year we reviewed 15,587 law firms throughout the United States – across 75 national practice areas – and a total of 2,179 firms received a national law firm ranking. We are proud that the ‘Best Law Firms’ rankings continue to act as an indicator of excellence throughout the legal industry.” Check out the U.S. News release here.

As Best Lawyers describes the recognition:

Inclusion in Best Lawyers is based on a rigorous peer-review survey comprising more than 9.4 million confidential evaluations by top attorneys. Our founding principle remains unchanged since 1981 and forms the basis of our transparent methodology: The best lawyers know who the best lawyers are. (As always, no fee or payment to participate is allowed.)
