First, to recognize the skills, experience and accomplishments of trial lawyers who had won large and complex cases. Second, to provide a national network of experienced colleagues who handle such cases, to facilitate information exchange, local assistance and case referrals. The organization was created and membership invitations were sent to a number of trial lawyers throughout the country who had won million and multi-million dollar cases. Membership invitations are now sent only to attorneys who objectively appear to be qualified, including those whose names have been proposed from case reports and nominations of current members. Other attorneys who are qualified may apply for membership. Membership requires completion, review and approval of a detailed membership application.

    Avvo 10.0 Rating | Top Rated Personal Injury Lawyer Robert May

    Looking for a top rated personal injury lawyer can be difficult. Once measure is the rankings and awards received by the lawyer throughout the course of his or her career as a litigator. Personal injury attorney and founder of The May Firm, Robert May, has a perfect Avvo Rating of 10.0. This received this distinguished honor and we are proud of Mr. May for obtaining a “Superb” 10.0 Avvo Rating.

    What Is the Avvo Rating Process

    The Avvo Rating is our effort to evaluate a lawyer’s background, based on the information we know about the lawyer. The rating is calculated using a mathematical model that considers the information shown in a lawyer’s profile, including a lawyer’s years in practice, disciplinary history, professional achievements and industry recognition – all factors that, in our opinion, are relevant to assessing a lawyer’s qualifications.

    We periodically collect background data from multiple sources, including state bar associations, court records, lawyer websites, and information that lawyers choose to provide to Avvo. Please keep in mind that we are not able to collect every piece of information about every lawyer’s background. Information that we do not have could very well change the lawyer’s Avvo Rating. So whether you see the numerical or the basic Avvo Rating, you should do further research regarding the lawyer to collect all relevant information regarding the lawyer’s background.

    Top 40 Attorneys Under 40 in California | American Society of Legal Advocates

    Overview of the Selection Process According to ASLA:

    ASLA’s exclusive membership comprises less than 1.5% of all licensed lawyers nationwide. ASLA is both highly selective in extending invitations and in determining which specialties to include for a given state. Because many specialties typically include listings for Top 100 Lawyers and Top 40 Lawyers Under 40, in order to remain selective we ensure that each specialty in a state has a sufficient number of practicing lawyers to merit inclusion. Those states with relatively low populations of practicing lawyers often will support only one or two specialties. ASLA monitors practice trends from year to year prior to extending invitations in each state.

    The Selection Process of Nomination Per ASLA:

    ASLA’s entire selection process is conducted manually by lawyers. Prospective members initially are evaluated based on publicly-available information, although member nominations also are accepted from current members, other lawyers, and past clients. Self-nominations and nominations from public relations firms or advertising agencies are not accepted….click hereto read more.
