    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.
