When faced with a legal situation, it’s imperative to have a trusted source for quality attorney referrals readily available. As a service to readers, Palm Springs Life partnered with Avvo, a Seattle-based firm that rates and profiles attorneys nationwide.

Founded in 2006 by Mark Britton, a former top executive at Expedia.com, Avvo (short for avvocato, the Italian word for lawyer) utilizes a proprietary algorithm to rate attorneys on a 10-point scale, factoring in peer endorsements as well as experience, education, training, speaking, publishing, and awards. These ratings are continuously refreshed based on new information gleaned from attorneys as well as from licensing and disciplinary authorities.

The firm, which has selected 70 attorneys in the Coachella Valley in 18 different specialties, provides unmatched transparency, enabling those who may know little about law to make smart, informed decisions. The system was developed with input from hundreds of practicing professionals, consumers, and top-notch industry consultants and advisers.

While the roster on the pages that follow is wide-ranging and carefully researched, many good attorneys don’t appear on the list. This reference is best used as just one step in the careful journey toward finding the right attorney for your needs.

Visit www.avvo.com for each lawyer's Avvo profile and rating.
