1. Choose a professional photo that is cropped appropriately. This tip seems obvious, but it’s often overlooked. When an Avvo user is browsing the directory of attorneys in their area, they’re presented with a photo, a brief description and a rating.
2. Add website and social media links. Your Avvo profile should provide an overview of you, your services and how to contact you. However, many users will want to visit your law firm’s website for more information.
3. Make sure all practice areas are reflected. Many attorneys will specify one or two practice areas. However, the practice areas you specify in your profile affect what types of Avvo searches your profile can appear on, so it’s important to make these as accurate as possible.
4. Contribute to Legal Answers. Contributing to Avvo legal answers is a great way to boost your reputation and showcase your subject matter expertise. You can also earn status levels for contributions to Avvo’s Q&A.
5. Set a calendar reminder to update your profile every 3-6 months. Keeping your Avvo profile up-to-date is crucial. Every time you publish something, speak at an event or receive an award, you should update your profile to reflect it.
6. Get both client and attorney reviews, and make sure to comment on them. With Avvo, both peer reviews and client reviews are visible on your profile. Peer reviews are especially helpful, as it’s one of the few places where you are allowed to ask for reviews from people who are not your clients.
7. Be as descriptive as possible about your costs. When you search for an attorney on Avvo, users have the option to filter by attorneys who provide a free consultation.
8. Add additional photos and videos. In the biography section, you have the option to add additional photos and videos. If your law firm uses video marketing, this is a great way to showcase your videos.
9. Add all office locations. (if you have multiple.) Another common mistake on Avvo is only listing one office address if you have multiple offices. This functions in the same way that practice areas do.
10. Make sure every attorney at your firm has an Avvo profile. For many medium or large law firms, only the managing partners will actively maintain a presence on Avvo.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Avvo provide ratings for Attorney profiles that are not claimed?

Avvo does not provide a numerical rating for profiles that have not been claimed by that attorney. Avvo does not provide any rating in instances where it would not be useful, such as if the attorney is deceased or serving as a public official.

What happens if an attorney doesn't claim their profile?

When an attorney doesn’t claim their profile, we tend to have more limited information and, therefore display an Avvo Rating of either “Attention” or indicate that they are not active on Avvo. “Attention” is given if there is information in public records that, in our opinion, you should be aware of, such as disciplinary action against a lawyer.

Can Avvo delete an attorney's profile if the Attorney files a lawsuit?

Avvo creates a profile for each attorney whether the attorney wants one or not. It will not delete an attorney's profile even if the attorney files a lawsuit demanding that it be removed. The information Avvo posts about attorneys is gathered from public sources and it may or may not be accurate.

What can I write about an attorney on Avvo?

Avvo lets anyone write virtually anything about any attorney on that attorney's profile without verifying that the person really was or is a client. If he or she has ever been subjected to disciplinary action by the state bar association, that information is prominently disclosed on the lawyer's profile as well.
