Legal River is an online marketplace that connects small business owners with the right lawyer to meet their needs. Without picking up the phone or paying a dime, users can input details about their type of business, along with their legal issue, and receive e-mail responses from qualified attorneys who are willing to take on the assignment. While there are countless online directories designed to allow users to search for the names and phone numbers of local lawyers, Legal River is unique in its ability to provide actual responses to a user’s query from the attorneys themselves.
After inputting your contact information and legal question, Legal River allows you to sit back and wait for the responses from local attorneys to start pouring in. The online platform makes it easy to compare responses and evaluate each individual attorney’s credentials, experience, and rates from the comfort of your own home or office. From there, users are encouraged to select an attorney, and follow up on the case through e-mail or phone.
Legal River’s expansive network of attorneys makes the site infinitely useful to business owners in nearly any industry—from technology entrepreneurs interested in patenting a new product to residential contractors looking for advice during a contract dispute. The website’s clean interface makes it easy to navigate, while its side-by-side comparisons take the guess work out of finding a lawyer. We would definitely recommend the site to any businesses owner in need of legal representation.
