Alternative Lawyer Referral and Rating Services

 

Avvo.Com – Ratings, Guidance, The Right Lawyer

http://avvo.com

Allows search by type of attorney you are looking for (Labor, Personal Injury, etc.) but also allows you to rate them on your experience and see ratings based on the experiences of others.

 

BestLawyers.Com

http://bestlawyers.com

Very good search tool that allows you to seek an attorney based on the type of practice area your issue is related to.  Does not have a rating system and results are limited to non-subscribers of the site.  The website does present biographical information on the attorney and the related firm based on your search parameters.

 

LawDragon.com

http://lawdragon.com

Provides a search tool to locate an attorney based on the practice issue your concern is related to.  Also allows a person to review the rating of the attorney based on the experience of others and similarly, allows a person to rate an attorney based on their own encounter with them.

 

Martindale.com

http://MartinDale.com

A very sophisticated and useful search tool that allows very in-depth searches for attorney’s based on area of specialty and sub-specialties in their area of expertise.  The website does allow for searches to be based on client and peer reviews, although these details are not often present for the potential client to evaluate.
