Avvo.com is an online legal services marketplace which provides lawyer referrals and access to a database of legal information consisting of previously answered questions, with information that includes client reviews, disciplinary actions, peer endorsements, and lawyer-submitted legal guides.
Avvo has developed a rating scale for lawyers based upon a proprietary algorithm, though it has been criticized. A lawsuit filed against the company alleged it was a “scam” and libelous, though this was later dismissed based on the First Amendment protection of free speech.
