e-Lawyering Offers a Win-Win for Clients and Lawyers
Today's news brings not just one, but two stories that demonstrate the value of e-lawyering -- that is, the automated processing of simple legal matters -- to both lawyers and clients.
Larry Bodine describes how one Chicago firm is benefiting from e-marketing. Referencing this article by Lauren Daley, Bodine discusses the success that Cowell, Taradash has had with its Web site, Illinois Divorce, which helps clients obtain divorces over the Internet. Today, the site generates 10 to 15 percent of the firm's business.
But how do clients feel about assembly-line service? At least one -- Janet Long of Elaine's Toffee Company -- is raving about the benefits of Legal Zoom, a service that she used to incorporate her now-successful San Francisco-based toffee business. Indeed, Legal Zoom was so grateful for Long's positive feedback that it featured her in a Legal Zoom television commercial, which in turn helped propel Long's previously local company onto the national scene.
