Can You Trust Online Ratings of Lawyers?

In a nearby suburb, an attorney was suspended for five years after admitting to taking money from his firm, lying to a court that a client agreed to settle a lawsuit filed against her, and neglecting clients after starting his own firm. Given the full story, I would have disbarred him.

I checked him out on several online ratings services and learned that he is a “Super Lawyer” an Avvo four star lawyer, and the recipient of other accolades. This guy has been in trouble since at least 2013. You can’t trust those ratings.

Something must be done about this, and about certain fraudulent "Super Lawyer" editions of magazines. Surely those "Super Lawyers" pay for those profiles?
