Twenty-Five Burg SImpson Attorneys have achieved a “Superb Rating” by AVVO. Martindale-Avvo is a legal directory that provides comprehensive attorney profiles, client reviews, peer endorsements, and a proprietary rating for more than 97 percent of all licensed attorneys in the United States. Avvo lawyer profiles are aggregated from public records provided by state bars and additional attorney licensing entities. Avvo’s directory includes ratings of lawyers in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The Avvo Rating evaluates a lawyer’s profile and creates the rating using a model that also considers information collected from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals. The Avvo rating is calculated using a mathematical model, and all lawyers are evaluated on the same set of standards.
