New app offers you a lawyer on demand via video chat
Quicklegal is a start-up company that matches up those needing legal help, with an attorney. This is not only the first app to provide on-demand legal app, it is the only app that does so. For $49, a licensed attorney will conduct a 15-minute video conference or a standard call for $49. For $29, you can send an email to the attorneys and receive back a written, detailed legal analysis of your situation.
The app employs pay as you go, and requests a complete user review on the attorney that gets an assignment. If an attorney receives consecutive bad user ratings, he or she is removed from the service. Generally, lawyers signed up for the app are "licensed, reliable and knowledgeable," according to Justin Lowenthal, the company's General Counsel.
Keep in mind that this app is not for serious criminal charges, such as murder. Licensed lawyers in good standing can sign up with the app and get a 30-day free trial. Those who decide to take their legal talents to South Beach the app, can set their own hours and work from anywhere. Quicklegal has launched in California, and will expand nationally starting next month. The app is available for those law breakers totin' an iOS or Android device.
