About this Lawyer Data

Justice Toolbox publishes lawyer reviews based on win-loss records of actual court proceedings.

Our case data comes from the Maryland and Washington, D.C. court systems, with close to 5 million legal cases. Cases in other court systems are not in our system yet, unless provided by the lawyer. Also, our data does not include (1) cases that are inaccessible or missing from court systems and (2) legal work that occurs outside of court proceedings.

All of the data on this page are estimates automatically computed by an artificial intelligence (AI) program and are not manually verified. Technology does not always work, and our information could be wrong. However, we provide the name and case number of every case our data is based on, at the bottom of the page, so you can check the results yourself.

Each case is different and the past record is no assurance that this lawyer will be successful in reaching a favorable result in any future case.

Our Ratings

We rate Alison's performance in each case type, and we also show the attorney's performance statistics used to compute our quality rating. The data in the following table are estimates computed by our AI based on cases in our database.

Different legal areas require different knowledge, skills, and experience. An attorney's performance can be better or worse in different areas because of the different requirements. Some attorneys choose to specialize in specific areas, and the attorney's performance will typically be better in his or her area of specialty than in other areas.
