Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 18, 2007
Inspired by his experiences as a volunteer SCORE® counselor and "The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch," Los Angeles-based business transactional attorney Jerry Mowery has taken the "shark" element out of the law firm to create DriveThruLegal.com. This new kind of law firm offers entrepreneurs quality legal services in exchange for affordable fixed rates (without a retainer).
So what? Take a quick surf of the internet from the perspective of an entrepreneur and you will find yourself forced to make the uncomfortable choice between going with an expensive law firm or a low cost document-only web site to handle your legal needs.
Jerry found that by taking the "shark" element out of the business model for a law firm, he could offer entrepreneurs the best of both worlds: legal counseling and document services at affordable and fixed prices.
Jerry defines the "shark" element as the ego-driven facet of attorneys' personalities that drives up overhead and, in turn, legal fees. According to Jerry, "In my experience, most attorneys are really concerned about keeping up with the Joneses of the legal community by showing everyone (and themselves) that they charge as much as the next guy, and have fancy offices, country club memberships, personal assistants, and so on."
In short, cut out the ego, and you cut out the overhead. DriveThruLegal.com lets the attorney and the client share the savings in the form of prices both sides can live with.
Jerry shares his clients' entrepreneurial spirit. He launched DriveThruLegal.com on July 15, 2007, and he plans to take his new business model national in 2008.
