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.
