Reviews and the Avvo Rating

Reviews do not affect the Avvo Rating. While endorsements from peers are a form of industry recognition - like to being asked to speak at a professional seminar or publishing an article - input from clients is very different. It may reflect positively or negatively on a professional, and may include comments that are more reflective of approach than ability. As people often find other feedback to be valuable, we have chosen to include reviews in a stand-alone section in each lawyer's profile, but not have those reviews impact the Avvo Rating.
