Before you decided which hotel you would stay at on your vacation, you most likely read some reviews from other travelers. When you were looking for a new computer, you probably researched on or another website to see how consumers were rating that product. Have you followed the same process when choosing a Fairfax car accident attorney to represent you?

Just like the various consumer product rating websites, there are also many sites that rate lawyers. It doesn’t matter what type of attorney you are looking for – a Virginia personal injury lawyer or a workers’ comp attorney – these websites will provide just the information you need.

Below is a brief list of attorney rating websites that are definitely worth checking out:

  • AVVO:
    According to this company’s website, it “empowers consumers by rating doctors and lawyers, and having these real professionals answer their questions - all for free.” Each attorney is assigned a rating from 1 to 10, with 10 being the best. The rating is based on how long the attorney has been practicing law, education, achievements and more.
  • SuperLawyers:
    Super Lawyers rates lawyers from over 70 different practice areas. The focus is on peer recognition and professional achievement. Super Lawyers publishes the names of lawyers who received the highest point totals, as chosen by their peers and through the independent research.
  • BestLawyers:
    Best Lawyers is one of the oldest peer review publications in the legal industry. Reviews are based on the evaluations of peers within the legal field. Each year, Best Lawyers publishes Best Lawyers in America, which includes the names of 41,149 lawyers in 126 practice areas.

It may take you some time to go through these various websites, but in the long run, it is definitely worth it.
