Why the AVVO rating is false and mis-leading

AVVO claims it's "rating" gives you a basis to compare lawyers to find a highly "rated" lawyer you can trust. That's a lie.

The information regarding disciplinary actions can be obtained by contacting the state bar associations. Do't trust AVVO! They have some attorneys who have been DIBARRED for ethical violations rated above highly respected, highly skilled and competent attorneys who have never had ANY record of discipline! The AVVO ratings system is FALSE and deceptive.
