Justia Enhances Lawyer Directory With Lawyer Ratings and Reviews
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April, 11, 2018 – Justia today announced the addition of the Justia Lawyer Rating and Reviews feature to the Justia Lawyer Directory. This new feature is intended to provide valuable insights to potential clients from peers and colleagues personally familiar with the lawyers' work.
The Justia Lawyer Rating and Reviews system is based solely on attorney-to-attorney reviews. Not only must an individual be an attorney to rate a lawyer, but the reviewer must also be personally familiar with the work of the lawyer. The system includes both numerical and written components.
The Justia Lawyer Rating is based on the scores given to a lawyer by his or her reviewing peers. In addition to providing an overall rating for the attorney, each reviewer must also numerically rate the attorney on:
- Legal Knowledge
- Legal Analysis
- Communication Skills
- Ethics and Professionalism
To support the numerical evaluations, reviewing attorneys are also required to provide narrative explanations.
The Justia Lawyer Directory is located at https://lawyers.justia.com.
“Our team works diligently to ensure the Justia Lawyer Directory is a useful resource for individuals and businesses seeking to hire an attorney,” explained Justia CTO Vasu Kappettu. “The new Justia Lawyer Rating and Reviews system will add another helpful dimension for consumers and business people to compare their options.”
Ratings are displayed as a badge on attorney profiles in the Justia Lawyer Directory. Attorneys may also display the badge on their websites and other marketing materials.
