People come to Elite Litigators to connect with great attorneys and law firms. We know that people won’t always agree, but we expect everyone on the site to treat one another and the platform with honesty and respect. We’ve put together these review guidelines to help set the tone for writing reviews on the site—just in case. Also, please see our Content Section in the Elite Litigators Terms of Service.
- Relevance: Please make sure your reviews are appropriate to the forum. For example, reviews aren’t the place for rants about an attorney’s political ideologies, a law firm’s employment practices, extraordinary circumstances, or other matters that don’t address the core of the client experience.
- Inappropriate content: Colorful language is fine, but there’s no place for offensive content, threats, harassment, lewdness, hate speech, obscenity, profanity, sexually explicit or adult-themed content, violence or gore, dangerous or illegal content, or displays of bigotry in any form.
- Conflicts of interest: Your reviews on Elite Litigators should be unbiased and objective. For example, you shouldn’t write reviews of your own law firm, your friends’ or relatives’ law firm, your peers or competitors in your industry, or law firms in your networking group. Law firms and attorneys should never ask customers or clients to write reviews on Elite Litigators. You should never impersonate a client of your business or a competitor business.
- Privacy: Don’t publicize people’s private information in your reviews. For instance, don’t post other people’s full names unless you’re referring to someone who is commonly referred to by their full name.
- Promotional content: Don’t post promotional material in your reviews unless it’s in connection with an Elite Litigators advertising product and through a Business Account. Let’s keep the site useful for clients and not overrun with commercial noise from every user.
- Intellectual property: Don’t swipe content from other sites, users, or businesses. You’re a smart cookie, so write your own copy and share your own thoughts.
- Personal experience: We want to hear about your firsthand experience, not what you heard from your friend or co-worker, or what you saw in the news. Tell your own story without resorting to broad generalizations and conclusory allegations.
- Accuracy: Make sure your reviews are factually correct. Feel free to air your opinions, but don’t exaggerate or misrepresent your experience. We don’t take sides when it comes to factual disputes, so we expect you to stand behind your review.
- Demanding payment: Writing a review should be informative and meant to help the broader Elite Litigators community. You should not threaten to post or offer to remove a negative review as a way to extract payment from a business.
