An Independent Firm Selects 77 Coachella Valley Attorneys in 20 Specialties


When a legal situation befalls you, the safest turn is to a trusted source for quality attorney referrals. As a service to readers, Palm Springs Life has partnered with Avvo (, a Seattle-based firm dedicated to helping people make the best decisions for their important professional needs.

Founded in 2006 by Mark Britton, a former top executive at, Avvo empowers consumers with lawyer profiles that contain helpful information, including experience, background, disciplinary history, and reviews from clients. The profiles also break down how much of an attorney’s practice is dedicated to particular specialties and offer clients space to share their experiences.

Avvo — short for avvocato, the Italian word for lawyer — provides unmatched transparency, enabling people who may know little about law to make smart, informed decisions.

Avvo ratings take into account each lawyer’s education, board certification, years of experience, professional conduct, and industry recognition and achievement. The system was developed with input from hundreds of practicing professionals, consumers, and top-notch industry consultants and advisers.
