Do consumers really need "protection" from SuperLawyers and Best Lawyers in America advertising? As long as the methodology for compiling the ratings is published, consumers can make their own assessment.

A far more interesting rating system would be one compiled from client opinions, not peers. Or, a compilation of all professional 'outcomes'. Certainly not possible yet. But as privacy continues to erode, it is inevitable.

Actually, it really doesn't mean much in terms of actual legal skills. I've known someone who is an absolute moron (no exaggeration) with respect to legal skills who has consistently been ranked a "Superlawyer". Basically, it is a popularity contest. It is easy to manipulate. As a result, to the general public, it is misleading at best, and harmful at worst.
