We can do pretty much everything these days by consulting our smartphones or by downloading an app. Well, finding a lawyer is now no different. There are resources you can access on your phone that can help you address any legal problems you might be having. For example, there’s a free iOS app called Legal Services Link that’s available to assist you in getting your legal issues sorted out – all with a few clicks!
Here’s how it works: let’s say you have a legal problem you need assistance with. It can be anything from getting help writing your will to finding an impaired driving lawyer. You start by posting what your legal needs are on the app – it’s all completely free to do so. You can also post anonymously so that your needs are kept private. Then, you’ll receive notifications (both through the app and by email) from lawyers interested in helping you. They’ll detail how they can help and how much they’ll charge. From there, you can review the emails and select the lawyer that fits your needs the best. The app also lets you browse and search for specific lawyers in their directory. After the legal work is completed, you can rate the experience you had with your lawyer, allowing future clients to have a better chance of connecting with the right counsel.
The CEO of Legal Services Link told Digital Trends that the app “is solving two very serious problems. First, finding and hiring the perfect attorney is an intimidating and time-consuming process for many, and most don’t know where to start. That results in most people not having their legal needs fulfilled, which in many cases, has lasting consequences. Second, even those that do try and have their legal needs fulfilled quickly realize that legal help is prohibitively expensive. Our platform addresses both of those issues.”
Using this app can indeed help people find reputable lawyers that they might not have access to otherwise. And instead of spending huge amounts of money on legal fees, the app lets you choose the lawyer that can complete your problem for a price that fits within your budget. So, rather than interviewing a bunch of lawyers over the phone or in person, you can save a lot of time and simply download the app and pick which lawyer best fits your needs and your finances.
Next time you find yourself in need of some legal advice, consider downloading an app like Legal Services Link to connect to a lawyer in a more technologically-savvy and simpler way.
