For more than 130 years, Martindale-Hubbell has been evaluating attorneys for their strong legal ability and high ethical standards through a Peer Review Rating system. Martindale-Hubbell provides verified ratings for attorneys based not only on their legal ability and ethical standards as judged by their peers, but also based on reviews from their clients.

Mr. Earl has also worked on appeals, including in the seminal Court of Appeal decision in Centex Golden Con Co. v. Dale Tile Co., 78 Cal. App. 992 (2000) which determined that a contractual indemnitor owed a defense obligation to a contractual indemnitee in a construction subcontract even though the indemnitor was not at fault.
