According to a press release announcing the expansion, attorney profiles are now available in 20 states and the District of Columbia, and cover approximately 80 percent of licensed attorneys across the country. The site claims to include descriptions of attorneys’ practice areas, work experience, industry recognition and disciplinary sanctions. It also claims to collect and display client reviews submitted by consumers and peer reviews submitted by attorneys.
Curious, I clicked on the site and checked out several licensed attorneys I know. For most of them, there didn’t seem to be much information available -- not even their practice area.
Nonetheless, I encourage you to check it out. It can’t hurt to make sure that what’s there is accurate. And apparently you can “claim” your own profile for free, which allows you to make updates, invite lawyers to endorse you and invite clients to submit ratings. You can judge for yourself if you think the site is worthwhile.
