Serving the Injured Across North Dakota, Minnesota & Montana


Maring Williams has been awarded an AV rating from the Martindale-Hubbell© Peer Review Ratings™. This is the highest rating, bestowed only upon attorneys who have been found to possess the highest ethical standards and legal ability.

For more than 140 years, Martindale-Hubbell has been a trusted legal authority on legal professionals in the United States. The Martindale-Hubbell© Peer Review Ratings™ helps consumers to identify, evaluate and select the most appropriate lawyer for the specific task at hand.

The Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings are an objective indicator of the lawyer’s high ethical standards and professional ability, generated from evaluations of lawyers by other members of the bar and the judiciary in the United States and Canada. There are two components to the review ratings. The first rating, general ethical standards, denotes adherence to professional standards of conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to the discharge of professional responsibilities. Those lawyers who meet the “very high” criteria of general ethical standards can proceed to the next step in the ratings process-legal ability.

Legal ability ratings are based on performance in five key areas, which include:

  • Legal knowledge

  • Analytical capabilities

  • Judgment

  • Communication ability

  • Legal experience

The top rating is AV Pre-eminent©, indicating a lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence.

Maring Williams is proud to announce that our lawyers have earned the following ratings:

  • David Maring – AV Pre-eminent©
  • Michael Williams – AV Pre-eminent©
  • Daniel Dunn – AV Pre-eminent©
  • Duane Lillehaug – AV Pre-eminent©

The methodology for the Martindale-Hubbell© Peer Review Ratings™ can be found on Martindale's website.

    Our client was a passenger in a vehicle that collided with a semi-tractor on a highway.

  • Oilfield Accident $1.8 Million Settlement
