10.0: Brad’s Superb Rating on Avvo

We are excited to share that Micklin Law Group Founder & Attorney Brad Micklin has received a 10.0 rating on Avvo!

Here is more information on Brad’s new rating from Avvo:

How does Avvo calculate the Avvo Rating?

We calculate the rating based on public data we’ve collected on each attorney and the information they have provided in their profile. Information not supplied by the attorney comes from a variety of sources, including public records (state bar associations, regulatory agencies, and court records) and published sources on the internet (including attorneys’ websites).

This information is then considered and weighted by our mathematical module to calculate a numerical rating, ranging from 1 to 10. If we have limited information on an attorney, we may give them a rating of “Attention” or “No Concern.” We take into account factors that consumers and legal professionals believe are relevant to an attorney’s qualifications, including experience, professional achievements, and disciplinary sanctions.

Avvo publishes a numerical rating for all claimed profiles, as well as for all unclaimed profiles where we have gathered additional information or believe the numerical rating would benefit consumers seeking legal services. As a general rule, unclaimed profiles with a rating of 6.5 or higher will have their numerical rating published. We believe that’s better for consumers- who sometimes struggle with the “No Concern” rating- and the lawyers who serve them. Please note that we do not convert numerical ratings to “No Concern.”

Does Avvo publish the details of how the rating is calculated?

The data that we take into account is all displayed on an attorney’s profile. However, we do not disclose the weight we give to this information so that no one can game the system, boosting their rating through unfair advantage. Much as Google doesn’t share its search engine secrets, we don’t share the inner-workings of the Avvo Rating so we can maintain the neutrality and integrity of the rating.
