ON ATTORNEY RATINGS

This is the age of ratings. Of the two largest I know, I rank very high:

Avvo:  https://www.avvo.com/attorneys/11756-ny-jon-probstein-808277.html

Martindale-Hubbell: http://www.martindale.com/Jon-Michael-Probstein/144480-lawyer.htm

But what do these really mean? In December 2015, the New York State Bar Association Committee on Attorney Professionalism issued a Report on Attorney Ratings to address certain aspects of the use of attorney - ratings services. The purpose of this Report was to highlight various relevant considerations that may be applicable to the use of ratings and set forth some suggested guidelines concerning their use and sought to identify important considerations and recommended practices regarding the use of attorney - ratings services by attorneys and by potential and existing clients.
