How this Works

Justice Toolbox is the only free tool that publishes lawyer performance reviews based on records of actual court proceedings. We want to empower people by giving them objective data about lawyers before they hire counsel. This comes with several caveats:

How are wins and losses determined?

How are attorneys rated?

Matthew's Ratings Per Case Type

We rate Matthew'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.
