"Superb" 10 out of 10 Avvo Rating
Wondering what an Avvo rating is? This is a legal rating system that ranks attorneys on a completely unbiased level. The ratings are determined by both legal experts and non-experts alike, therefore the ratings are comprehensive and from the perspective of consumers, clients, experts and fellow attorneys. Receiving a 10 out of 10 rating is considered "Superb" and the highest possible rating of its kind. There is also a rigorous process for rating attorneys on Avvo that includes the compilation of public records such as case results and state bar information as well as an attorney's experience in the field and any other notable professional accomplishments.
A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau®
The Better Business Bureau® or simply BBB is widely recognized as the source for identifying legitimate businesses across the nation. The BBB issues letter grades based upon a number of different factors such as a company's history of complains (if any), length of time in operation, their background as well as licensing information. While these grades do not guarantee the quality of a business, they do indicate valuable information. A+ is the highest rating possible.
