San Francisco (PRWEB) April 14, 2008
Today HelpMeSue.com (http://www.HelpMeSue.com) announced the commercial launch of its new service to quickly connect Americans with legal disputes to concerned citizens and lawyers who can help. Officially launching on April 14th, 2008, HelpMeSue.com is designed to help average Americans test the merits of potential lawsuits easily and anonymously, while driving high-quality leads to partner law firms.
For people who want to sue - plaintiffs - HelpMeSue.com is a free service. Plaintiffs can quickly and anonymously post the details of their case online. Lawyers and concerned citizens can then publicly reply, offering advice and opinions on the merits of the case through our proprietary public messaging system. Lawyers who wish to bid on the case can contact the plaintiff privately. The plaintiffs have the choice to remain anonymous throughout the entire process.
"Throughout our 15-week public beta period, potential plaintiffs submitted over 500 lawsuits. Lawyers and concerned citizens submitted thousands of comments. HelpMeSue.com continuously refined our service by working closely with both plaintiffs and law firms to customize our services to their needs," said Brian Schneider, co-founder of HelpMeSue.com."
With cases ranging from elder abuse and child welfare to personal injury, defamation, and consumer protections, HelpMeSue.com has proven the ideal platform for Americans of all stripes to voice their legal grievances and receive free, anonymous, and fast feedback on their lawsuits' merits. Listening to customer feedback, HelpMeSue.com also developed a class action feature that helps law firms quickly and easily review class actions, and if interested, contact class members.
Law firms also benefit from HelpMeSue.com's services. By scanning HelpMeSue.com's website or signing up for our RSS feeds, lawyers can quickly and easily find cases that are near them and in their fields of expertise. By frequently commenting and offering advice on cases publicly - even if the case is outside of their area - lawyers are able to establish a strong online reputation, which similar to feedback systems on e-commerce sites, help drive preference for the law firm's brand. Currently, HelpMeSue.com's services are completely free for attorneys and their firms.
Affecting positive social change was a key driver behind HelpMeSue.com's founding. "We wanted to make a social impact by using technology to help everyday people solve legal disputes. Americans have a fantastic legal system at their disposal, but over years the system has become overrun by jargon, difficult to navigate, and dominated by rich individuals and powerful corporations. The end result is that the average American is simply cannot afford the time, effort, and money involved in finding the best legal advice for their specific case," said Kevin Yu, co-founder of HelpMeSue.com
By enabling average Americans to share their legal concerns quickly and anonymously, HelpMeSue.com allows everyday folks to retake control of the legal system. By encouraging law firms to share their knowledge publicly, HelpMeSue.com helps lawyers build an online reputation, making it easier for them to acquire customers from HelpMeSue.com's case flow.
As co-founder Brian Schneider says, "Our goal with HelpMeSue.com is not just to help folks get the settlements that they deserve - monetary and otherwise; it's really to shake up the entire legal system by making it easier to access by all parties, and thereby more efficient overall."
Founded in 2007, HelpMeSue.com simplifies the chore of finding legal representation; enabling a plaintiff to quickly, easily, and anonymously seek help from multiple lawyers and concerned citizens online. HelpMeSue.com does this by providing the leading system of choice for online demand aggregation for the legal services industry. Since its inception, HelpMeSue.com has been focused enabling more middle-class Americans to affordably seek legal help while benefiting smaller law firms by providing a book of relevant cases for them to directly bid on. HelpMeSue.com is headquartered in Los Alamitos, California.
