Are ratings of attorneys reliable?

I recently received a top rating from for attorneys in the Washington, D.C., area.   However, consumers should be extremely skeptical of ratings or ranking of attorneys.  It is impossible to rate attorneys based upon objective criteria.  The result is that such ratings are unreliable and meaningless.   Even if such ratings were accurate, it does not mean that every client needs an expensive, top rated lawyer.  For example, Consumer Reports for the past few years has given its highest rating (99 out of 100) to the Lexus LS 460L automobile.   But that doesn’t mean that everyone needs or can even afford this vehicle.
