The Easy Legal Service Connects Virtual Lawyers with Do-it-Yourself Clients
SAN FRANCISCO (November 18, 2008) -- Today, RocketLawyer.com unveiled a new and improved Web Law Office™, empowering lawyers to deliver legal services completely online. Leading the growing trend toward "do it yourself" legal services and the rapid emergence of virtual offices and work from home lawyers, the Rocket Lawyer Web Law Office delivers essential legal software as a service (SaaS). As a SaaS application, the Web Law Office enables lawyers to review and revise legal documents online via the same web site as their client.
According to Charley Moore, Founder and CEO of Rocket Lawyer: "In today's economy, saving money, while getting the job done right, is essential. RocketLawyer.com makes legal work easy and affordable for everyone, including lawyers. We're gratified to announce our Web Law Office as a simple, low cost software as a service offering for legal document drafting, collaboration and Click-through Legal Review™ by attorneys nationwide, during our Previews presentation at the SIIA OnDemand Conference in San Jose."
Charley presented the Web Law Office publicly for the first time today at the SIIA OnDemand Conference, where Rocket Lawyer was featured during SIIA’s Previews. In his presentation, he explained how a lawyer with a Web Law Office can easily engage a new client online, while helping the client save time and money on several common legal matters. For example:
Free Legal Profiles and Click-through Legal Review: Every lawyer can create a free interactive profile to describe their services to potential clients. From there, as potential clients use the site for do it yourself legal services, they can easily connect with lawyers to help them with specific matters (as needed) via Rocket Lawyer's patent-pending Click-through Legal Review system.
The Rocket Lawyer presentation concluded with several simple real world examples, including:
Incorporating a business: A small business owner can save thousands of dollars in legal fees by using Rocket Lawyer to incorporate the business in any state, for only $99.95 plus state filing fees.
Creating company minutes and contracts: Using RocketLawyer.com, anyone can create company minutes, contracts, letters and other essential legal documents, in minutes. Because Rocket Lawyer is a hosted application, all documents may be shared and collaborated upon by multiple parties. Documents are automatically archived in a secure online vault called the FileSafekeeper™.
Writing a Will and other Personal Legal Documents: In addition to business legal documents, anyone can also create and store essential personal legal documents like wills, trusts, leases and more, paying only a flat fee, regardless of volume.
Saving Money in a Tough Economy. All of the services demonstrated can help both lawyers and clients to save a lot of money. For Lawyers, a Web Law Office, including a free profile, online word processor, document manager and online document storage, is available for as little as $39.95. For a client, the first legal document is always free and unlimited access to all of the benefits and features of Rocket Lawyer starts at only $19.95.
"RocketLawyer.com was selected as an SIIA OnDemand Preview company because we were impressed with its ease of use and overall innovation within the Software as a Service (SaaS) arena," noted Ken Wasch, SIIA President. "We are very pleased to have Charley Moore present the Rocket Lawyer service to our attendees this week,” Wasch continued.
