How does Avvo get information about lawyers?

Avvo uses publicly-available data to populate the basic information we have for 97% of attorneys in the US. Please keep in mind that we do not control the sources where we collect data, so if you come across incorrect information on a lawyer’s profile, please let us know. Our goal at Avvo is to make sure that everything we have on our site is as accurate and up-to-date as possible.

Some of our sources for attorney profiles:

  • State bar association and attorney licensing authorities
  • Court records
  • Attorney websites
  • Association websites
  • Information supplied by lawyers to Avvo

If you’re an attorney, you can claim your profile for free and update your information as much as you want.
