San Francisco, CA and Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) March 19, 2007
LegalMatch, the nation's premier online legal matching company, and the Utah State Bar have announced new expanded services. On the Utah State Bar (USB) website, LegalMatch will provide the USB with a co-branded version of LegalMatch's LegalCenter that now offers legal tips, a consumer law library, and resources for finding a Utah lawyer, all at no cost for the citizens of Utah. LegalMatch has been the legal matching service of choice for the USB for over three years.
The new cooperative law library offers more than 3300 articles on virtually every legal topic. These are written with the average person in mind, who is looking for clarification on complex issues, and who might find him or herself in the middle of either a law suit, family dispute, or a criminal investigation. The legal tips area offers easy to use and helpful advice on finding, hiring, and working with a lawyer. LegalMatch has built its customer base by empowering people when they are involved in the daunting task of hiring a lawyer; the LegalCenter is a central part of this empowerment. Toby Brown, Utah State Bar's Director of Communications says, "The Utah State Bar is very excited to be able to help more of our citizen with their legal questions and concerns. The online LegalCenter can now answer pressing questions, 24 hours per day, seven days per week, offering information and courses of action, whenever the people of Utah need it."
In addition to the 10% discount that Utah State Bar member attorneys receive on Legalmatch membership, this expanded service also extends important cost-saving benefits to all Utah State Bar member attorneys through LegalMatch's Financial Services Division. Chief among these is lower-cost credit card processing bereft of hidden fees and access to full practice financing.
LegalMatch and Utah State Bar: Now stronger partners
Since 2004, the Utah State Bar has recommended LegalMatch's service to the citizens of Utah as well as their member attorneys. The partnership not only provides Utah consumers immediate access to pre-screened, qualified attorneys, but allows Utah attorneys to receive screened cases, saving them time in their review for potential new clients. Brown adds "This expanded service is a win-win result as it provides greater value to the members of the Bar and better information for the public."
