I am honored to receive Avvo's highest rating for my estate planning work and probate work
Lancaster, California (PRWEB) August 18, 2009
Kevin Von Tungeln, a partner with Antelope Valley estate planning law firm Thompson Von Tungeln has been awarded a 10.0 "superb" rating by Avvo.com, the fastest growing online legal directory that rates attorney qualifications based on their background, consumer feedback, achievements and industry recognition.
"I am honored to receive Avvo's highest rating for my estate planning work and probate work," said Von Tungeln. "I am humbled by the rating, since I know it contains feedback from clients and colleagues. This is a great honor, and to be recognized by one's peers and clients is something that I appreciate deeply."
The Avvo.com rating is a mathematical model that uses information from state bars, regulatory bodies, clients, peers and court records to create a rating that is easy for consumers to understand. The rating scale ranges from a low of 1 to a high of 10. In the event that sufficient information cannot be gathered, Avvo will assign a rating of either "Attention" or "No Concern."
The Avvo rating is unbiased, since all attorneys are measured with the same criteria, it is easy to understand for consumers, and shows no favoritism since attorneys cannot delete negative information from the system. It is also the fastest growing online legal directory that over one million consumers visit every month to view attorney profiles and select law firms who can assist them with their legal needs. According to Avvo.com, over 5,000 consumers each week ask legal questions on their free discussion forums.
"The Avvo rating is a wonderful starting point for a consumer searching for an attorney," said Von Tungeln. "It is not the only criteria to use, but it certainly can help someone decide between attorneys they have been considering. When one's peers and clients speak highly of an attorney, it is a strong message to anyone considering retaining that attorney. It is high praise that has been earned."
