Why the Avvo Rating can help you find the right attorney:
There is no bias. The rating is calculated using a mathematical model, and all lawyers are evaluated on the same set of standards.
The Avvo Rating cannot be bought. At Avvo, all lawyers are treated equally. We don’t play favorites, and attorneys can’t pay us to improve their ratings.
It was developed by legal professionals and people looking for legal services. The model used to calculate the rating was developed with input from hundreds of attorneys, thousands of consumers, and many other legal professionals who deeply understand the work attorneys do. We created the Avvo Rating to reflect the type of information people have identified as important when looking to hire an attorney.
It’s as simple as counting to 10. Ratings fall on a scale of 1 (Extreme Caution) to 10 (Superb), helping you quickly assess a lawyer’s background based on our rating.
“There is a lot of confusion about the workings of wills and the probate process. A common misconception is that if you have a will, your estate won’t have to be probated, when in fact, a will is the legal instrument to guide the probate process.”
