Consumers are savvy, and when making important legal decisions, having this data can be incredibly useful.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 05, 2012
Shpoonkle a free legal services site has partnered with AttorneyFee, the leading comparison engine for local attorney fees. Today, Shpoonkle announces the availability of Attorney Fee’s API for use by Shpoonkle members. Data is king, and in the internet age the more information available to the consumer, the more empowered they will be to make critical decisions. The API enables Shpoonkle members to immediately access AttorneyFee’s new prediction engine service which uses massive amounts of demographic data points to produce average pricing for dozens of legal services. Shpoonkle’s clients post cases for free and attorneys bid on those cases, and the relevant national cost data for these services are then generated for both parties to review.
The AttorneyFee system displays geographic tailored flat-fee and hourly pricing for several legal services including divorce, wills and probate, and criminal defense, among many others. The prediction engine is powered by a custom arrangement of public record data that is expertly weighted by top economists to ensure accuracy.
“By offering our API in tandem with the introduction of our new prediction engine, we are presenting a great resource for potential partners in dozens of industries,” said Richard Komaiko, Co-Founder of AttorneyFee. “Shpoonkle implemented this API as it provides powerful information for consumers (client or legal professional) during the reverse auction process. Consumers are savvy, and when making important legal decisions, having this data can be incredibly useful,” said Robert Niznik, CEO of Shpoonkle. “The law and reasonably priced representation are needed for dozens of life situations, including divorce, real estate deals, motor vehicle infractions, and a host of others. AttorneyFee is allowing Shpoonkle to use its API to present the lawyer cost prediction engine to their audience, so they have fast and accurate access to the costs of legal services.”
