CHICAGO, IL — [March 27, 2014] — A new wave of online, cloud and paperless technologies are reshaping the legal future, and attorneys who fail to implement these tools risk being left behind. Rocket Lawyer™, the fastest growing online legal service, is making this transition as seamless as possible for attorneys in its Rocket Lawyer On Call® network with the launch of a new cloud-based client services tool -- the Attorney Task Board. The company made the announcement today at ABA Techshow 2014 in Chicago, Illinois.
The Attorney Task Board puts potential clients at attorneys’ fingertips by allowing them to easily respond to customers’ legal questions. Customers can ask legal questions on Rocket Lawyer through their computers or mobile devices, offering attorneys the opportunity to enhance their practices as they connect with potential clients.
The new tool manages a lawyer’s tasks into three working groups -- new, working and completed -- to organize the questions and interactions with potential clients. It also prioritizes legal questions by time remaining to answer a question, so that customers get timely responses to their urgent matters. Questions are limited to 600 characters, and responses are confined to 1,200 characters to simplify the interaction. The experience is easy for customers and convenient for attorneys.
"Being a part of the Rocket Lawyer On Call program has been great for promoting my firm. On Call made it easy and cost effective for me to meet new clients and be hired by them," said Galen Hair, a Louisiana attorney at Varadi, Hair & Checki LLC and Rocket Lawyer On Call attorney.
Rocket Lawyer On Call attorneys answer thousands of legal questions per month. Most common questions involve contracts, employment, starting a business, family issues, and real estate. The network has grown by nearly a third from January 2013 to January 2014. Through its incorporation services, legal documents and legal Q&A, Rocket Lawyer already has made the law more accessible for over 20 million users and created new revenue streams for attorneys by expanding the legal market.
“Rocket Lawyer On Call gives our members easy access to qualified lawyers in their area,” said Jay Mandal, Senior Director and Head of Legal Advice Business at Rocket Lawyer. “We believe all individuals and small businesses deserve affordable legal care, and that connecting our members with On Call lawyers is an important way to make sure they get the help they need.”
Attorneys interested in learning more about the On-Call Network are invited to stop by the Rocket Lawyer booth (#807) at the ABA Tech Conference, or visit: http://www.rocketlawyer.com/on-call-signup.rl.
