What Is the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory?

Martindale-Hubbell publishes the online Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory, which lists over a million lawyers and law firms practicing in the United States, Canada and more than 150 other countries, according to Martindale.com. The directory lists lawyers and firms by name, practice area and geographic area.

A basic profile in the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory is free, and Martindale-Hubbell's aim is for the directory to include every practicing U.S. lawyer and firm, states Martindale.com. For a fee, a lawyer or firm may include a professional biography in its listing. While Martindale-Hubbell markets its directory information primarily to law firms and corporations in search of specific legal talent, it also designs its directory for individual consumers.
