Avvo’s mission is to help people make the best decisions for their important legal needs. It provides attorney evaluations for every licensed attorney in the United States and a forum where consumers can ask questions and have them answered by attorneys. Carol Schlitt adds, “Avvo provides a critical service for consumers. It makes available information about training, experience, cases and both peer and client ratings so that individuals can make the best decision possible in selecting an attorney.”
Avvo explains why its attorney ratings are so helpful for consumers:
- It’s unbiased. Because ratings are calculated using a mathematical model, all lawyers are rated by the same standards.
- There’s no favoritism. Here at Avvo, all lawyers are treated equally. They can’t pay to change their ratings, and we don’t play favorites to lawyers we know.
- It’s developed by legal experts for non-experts. The model used to calculate the Avvo Rating was developed with input from hundreds of attorneys, thousands of consumers, and legal experts.
- It’s easy to understand. With simple ratings from 1 to 10 or “Attention” and “No Concern,” we hope to make clearer the murky process of understanding lawyers’ backgrounds.
Ms. Schlitt’s top ranking reflects the number of cases she has won, her years of experience as a personal injury attorney, her activity in the legal community and the praise received from other attorneys. One attorney said, “Her quarter century of experience and record of success has earned her the respect of other attorneys and judges, particularly for her trial work. Carol’s victories include a case where she obtained a $500,000 recovery against the NYC Transit Authority when no one else saw that value in the case or the fast settlement of $1.25 million for a wrongful death car accident case on Long Island. Carol Schlitt’s clients are in excellent hands.”
Another lawyer said of Ms. Schlitt, “Carol has represented three of our clients at trial and has obtained excellent results each time. Whether by settlement or verdict she put the defendants to the test each time and maximized the clients result. Her ability is respected by the judges she appears before and her adversaries.”
