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