Rated 10.0 ‘Superb” – AVVO

Rated 10.0 ‘Superb” – Awarded By AVVO 2012

From the rating agency: We calculate the Avvo Rating based on background data we’ve collected on each lawyer. That data may come from various sources, including public records (such as the state bar associations, regulatory agencies, and court records), published sources on the Internet (including lawyers’ websites), and information that lawyers choose to supply to Avvo. This information is then considered and weighted by our mathematical model to arrive at a numerical rating from 1 – 10 or, if we only have licensing records for an attorney, a rating of “Attention” or “No Concern.” The Avvo Rating takes into account factors that we believe are relevant to an assessment of a lawyer’s qualifications, including the attorney’s experience, professional achievements, and disciplinary sanctions.

Named a Rising Star. From Super Lawyers: “While up to five percent of the lawyers in the state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list. Bar associations and courts across the country have recognized the legitimacy of the Super Lawyers selection process. Most recently, the New Jersey Supreme Court upheld the findings of a Special Master assigned by the court to, among other things, examine the details of our process. In his July 2008 report, the Special Master lauded our lawyer-rating process, stating:

“[The Super Lawyers selection process] is a comprehensive, good-faith and detailed attempt to produce a list of lawyers that have attained high peer recognition, meet ethical standards, and have demonstrated some degree of achievement in their field.”
