My Review 

They will remove any negative remarks if an attorney has a fit. I left a sincere comment and it was removed by AVVO and the attorney posted many positive comments at that point in time. Before I posted the review there were none for that attorney and now there are all positive reviews. All I posted was what was true.

Would you recommend this to a friend? 

No

William Pfeifer, About.com Law Practice Management, says:

My understanding is that many attorneys are angry at Avvo precisely because Avvo will not remove negative comments, unless they are spam, abusive, or can be shown to not be from a real client. If you left a comment that was later removed by Avvo, there was probably some additional reason other than the attorney having a fit.
