New iPhone App Helps Drunk Drivers Calculate Blood Alcohol and Find a Lawyer

So, let's say that you've been laid off from your Biglaw job and you go out drinking to drown your sorrows (or celebrate your freedom). En route to your next destination, you get pulled over. So who are you going to call? Your ex-colleagues, most of whom have probably never seen the inside of a courtroom? Your mom? No worries -- because if you have an iPhone, you have a lawyer. Avvo, a lawyer directory/ratings site just announced the launch of a new iPhone application, dubbed "Last Call" that suggests the names of top DUI lawyers in the area from the Avvo directory. 

But Avvo isn't just trying to drum up business for lawyers in its listing service. The company prefers that you never reach that point, so the application includes a way to calculate blood alcohol levels (based on number of drinks and body size) and phone numbers for local cab companies if you discover you exceed the limit.
