About this Lawyer Data

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

Our case data comes from a national database of court cases, which includes nine million court cases. Some U.S. cases are not in our database yet, and our data does not include (1) cases that are missing from court systems and (2) legal work that occurs outside of court proceedings.

All of the data on this page are estimates computed by an artificial intelligence program and are not manually verified. Technology does not always work, and our information could be wrong. However, we provide the details 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.
