See my comments related to litigation. I know Mr. Polkinghorn specializes in labor law but he is an experienced litigation attorney now focusing in the field of labor law. He is extremely capable and deserving of an AV ratiing.

James Polkinghorn possess the knowledge, ability and judgment for an an AV rating. He is industrious, experienced and an extremely capable lawyer. I am surprised that he has not achived an AV rating by this point in his career. I suspect it has more to do with his focus on his work than his concern for his reputation.
