Mr. Jordan has been awarded the prestigious “AV Peer Review” rating by Martindale-Hubbell, the preeminent national publication in the legal field. According to Martindale-Hubbell, “An AV rating is a significant accomplishment - a testament to the fact that a lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence. A lawyer must be admitted to the bar for 10 years or more to receive an AV rating. This rating is based upon evaluations by other lawyers and is the highest ranking attainable by an attorney for ability and ethics in the practice of law. It is a distinction reserved for a select few in the legal community.”

Mr. Jordan has also been recognized as one of the Mid-South and Memphis area’s “Rising Stars” in Memphis Magazine’s Super Lawyer and Rising Star Section in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
