The American Institute of Legal Counsel, which operates the AIOPIA division, is a nationwide attorney rating service dedicated to recognizing legal professionals who have exemplified both excellence in their field and the support and commitment that exceeds client expectations. Each year, AIOPIA publishes a list of the “10 Best” attorneys in each state who have proven their abilities to succeed for injured victims and families.
Because only 10 attorneys are selected from each state, recognition in the AIOPIA 10 Best list is a significant achievement that speaks to a lawyer’s professional and personal achievements. After all, personal injury lawyers play a critical role in providing the compassionate and caring support victims need as they navigate physical recoveries and the legal process of seeking financial compensation for their damages. As AIOPIA uses an impartial, third-party selection process, attorneys are vetted on an objective basis and must meet all selection criteria, including:
- Formal nominations from legal peers, former clients, or the American Institute of Legal Counsel research staff.
- Objective indicators of success that show an attorney has attained the highest degree of professional achievement, including case results, notable victories, professional engagement, and more.
- Proven client satisfaction based on standing in the legal and local communities, and reviews and testimonials from former clients who have seen the attorney’s work in action.
AIOPIA’s focus on client satisfaction is a unique approach to attorney ratings. While the organization does meticulously evaluate nominees for their professional abilities and success, it does not disregard client satisfaction. Many attorneys may be able to achieve successful results, but it often comes at the expense of the clients’ experience. By placing an emphasis on client satisfaction and recognizing attorneys who excel both professionally and personally with clients, AIOPIA provides a comprehensive attorney rating system that local legal consumers can trust when selecting a lawyer to handle their case.
