About This Firm

Flexibility, Efficiency and Personal Service

Law is a constantly evolving field. The never-ending stream of decisions, changes in substantive law and changes in procedure mean that success is literally a moving target. When representing clients, the ability to embrace change and adapt accordingly is paramount, and the ability to do this is maximized in smaller, more efficient law firms. Smaller firms such as Carlson Boyd typically have fewer lawyers in control of the business of the firm-fewer cooks in the kitchen so to speak. Instead of a bureaucratic management committee or endless layers of supervising attorneys, our lawyers effectively operate as their own bosses and need no permission to vary their practice to meet the demands of our clients. Small firms such as ours are much quicker to make decisions and implement changes; a necessity in today's business climate.

Carlson Boyd also has an edge over larger firms in terms of adopting and utilizing technology. With the advent of the laptop age, technology has irrevocably decentralized the control of information and made it easier to stay on top of changes in Washington law. While large firms may have an advantage in terms of economies of scale and buying equipment at reasonable prices, smaller firms have a huge advantage in being able to actually utilize the latest technology. Invariably, it is cheaper, faster and more effective for the trial lawyer to be in control of the technology. This can be accomplished only by having the trial lawyer call the shots on the technology - not some centralized purchasing department.

The lawyers at Carlson Boyd recognize and value the personal relationships that are at the heart of the legal profession. We understand that it is imperative that attorneys foster and promote the personal relationships that yield timely, consistent responses and results. Instead of dealing with lengthy delays and unnecessary hierarchies, our attorneys are empowered to personally handle the legal needs of our clients in a timely, cost-effective manner.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
