“The way consumers search for an attorney has dramatically changed since the world went digital. Consumers can now use the Internet to research numerous attorneys, compare them and find the best attorney suited for their legal issue."
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 12, 2013
LawNearMe.com has recently launched its online attorney database with a mission of taking the law digital. LawNearMe.com is an up and coming website that embodies the modernization of the legal system. LawNearMe.com allows users to intelligently search an expanding database of local attorneys and seamlessly schedule consultations without incurring any fees. LawNearMe.com is the most user-friendly, comprehensive and informative lawyer database out there.
According to Diana Ferretti, head of sales at LawNearMe.com, times are changing and the legal system is finally catching up with the 21st century. Ferretti states “The way consumers search for an attorney has dramatically changed since the world went digital. Consumers can now use the Internet to research numerous attorneys, compare them and find the best attorney suited for their legal issue, all from the comfort of their own home. Think about it…would you want to ask family members for a recommendation on a divorce attorney? Or what about asking your neighbor for a recommendation if you were charged with a crime?" According to LexisNexis, 3 out of 4 consumers seeking an attorney over the last year used online resources. This means more consumers are turning to the Internet in their search for a lawyer not only for the comprehensive research capabilities but the anonymity that comes with it.
Attorney Peter G. Aziz of The Law Offices of Peter G Aziz & Associates LLC further supports this transformation in the legal system. Aziz states, "The world is going online and the legal system is following. The search for a lawyer has moved from the family home and onto the Internet. Lawyers who are looking to succeed need to have a directory profile, a user friendly website and be active on social media. Accepting this modernization is now the rule and not the exception. If lawyers don’t join the internet revolution they will be left behind. Almost 75% of my clients originate from the internet.”
Diana Ferretti, had this to say about the new trend in consumers turning to the Internet to find an attorney. “Our goals are ambitious as the legal profession has traditionally been reluctant in adopting new and modern technology even though the demand is there. People more and more, young and old, are turning to the Internet for information and this does not exclude looking for an attorney. LawNearMe.com provides consumers with one-stop-shopping for their attorney needs. Rather than making a major decision based on a friend’s experience, you are able to use a database that provides you with numerous reviews and ratings of the attorney; the good, the bad and the ugly,” she said.
The law has long been rooted in our history and tradition, unwilling to change unless forced to. The same can be said about how we use our legal system. In the past, consumers looking for an attorney have relied on one main resource, word of mouth. Children would ask their parents, parents would ask their friends and that was the extent of how a consumer found an attorney. With the launch of LawNearMe.com this month, the way consumers search for an attorney has changed forever.
