About the Avvo Rating

  • 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.

How does Avvo calculate the Avvo Rating?

AVVO calculates the rating based on public data collected on each attorney and the information they have provided in their profile. Information not supplied by the attorney comes from a variety of sources, including public records (state bar associations, regulatory agencies, and court records) and published sources on the internet (including attorneys’ websites).

This information is then considered and weighted by our mathematical module to calculate a numerical rating, ranging from 1 to 10. If we have limited information on an attorney, we may give them a rating of “Attention” or “No Concern.” We take into account factors that consumers and legal professionals believe are relevant to an attorney’s qualifications, including experience, professional achievements, and disciplinary sanctions.

What do the numerical ratings mean?

  • 10.0 - 9.0 Superb

  • 8.9 - 8.0 Excellent

  • 7.9 - 7.0 Very Good

  • 6.9 - 6.0 Good

  • 5.9 - 5.0 Average

  • 4.9 - 4.0 Concern

  • 3.9 - 3.0 Caution

  • 2.9 - 2.0 Strong Caution

  • 1.9 - 1.0 Extreme Caution

Do lawyers have to pay or sign-up to have an Avvo Rating?

Absolutely not. Avvo creates a profile for every licensed attorney we are able to locate, and calculates a rating for lawyers who appear to be working with clients. Profiles are free to attorneys, and the Avvo Rating cannot be influenced by advertising or other forms of payment.
