Avvo Rating – 10.0 (Superb)
Avvo evaluates attorneys by using a mathematical model from 1.0 (extreme caution) to 10.0 (superb). The model uses a number of variables to determine the attorney’s rating and all attorneys are evaluated on the same scale. These ratings rate a lawyer’s background, but do not evaluate past performance on individual cases or knowledge of the law. These are elements that the Avvo Rating cannot evaluate.
