One crucial means of appraising an attorney is by considering how independent rating bodies such as Avvo evaluate them. Attorney Casanova of Steven Casanova, PA was recently awarded a perfect score, 10.0 Superb Rating, on Avvo.
What is Avvo?
Avvo is a third-party organization that rates attorneys using a specific formula which takes into account information from the attorney’s profile, such as the number of years they have been practicing, any disciplinary history, professional achievements, and recognition by the legal industry.
In addition, Avvo collects information from state bar associations, court records, lawyer websites, and the information provided to Avvo by the lawyers themselves.
Avvo is a reputable and trustworthy aid in helping clients find an attorney because:
- They treat all attorneys equally and do not accept payment for ratings
- Its rating system is easy to understand—scores are from 1 to 10 based on the above factors
- Avvo is unbiased since all lawyers are rated using the same standards
- Ratings are marketed by legal professionals for those with no legal background
While Avvo ratings do not take an attorney’s personality or communication style into account, it does give former clients and other lawyers the chance to comment on their experience with a given attorney. Taken together, an attorney’s Avvo rating is a powerful and unique tool for potential clients to use when choosing who to represent them.
The perfect score from Avvo is a significant indicator of the high-quality criminal defense Steven G. Casanova, PA has been providing Melbourne clients since 1999. Attorney Casanova is also a member of the Florida Bar Association and The National Association of Criminal Defense Attorney, among others.
