Read about Attorney Kathleen Kienitz on Avvo.com, an online service to find legal help across the country, where her experience and firm is rated 10 out of 10.
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.

Kathleen was awarded the Champion of Justice Award for 2014 by Legal Services for the Elderly at the Maine State Bar Association’s annual meeting on January 31, 2014. The plaque she received stated that she was recognized “for her ongoing commitment to provide pro bono services to seniors in Maine.
