On February 9th, Avvo introduced “Avvo Legal Services,” an enhancement of their online shopping experience that includes newly bundled options to help consumers more easily find and hire attorneys in their area. Available via desktop, tablet or phone, the new service covers routine legal scenarios for business, family and immigration, with fixed-price offerings starting at $39 for a 15-minute advice session or $149 for a document review.
Avvo Legal Services offers consumers an easy way to efficiently handle common legal scenarios, such as:
- Getting advice from a small business attorney on understanding the process for starting a business
- A document review with an immigration attorney to evaluate a citizenship application
- A review of a separation agreement by a lawyer, to ensure the terms are equitable
The new options also include premium services incorporating both offline and online services, such as the ability to file for uncontested divorce, complete with a local family lawyer available to guide the process. Consumers can select the attorney and the service, most of which are provided within one business day of purchase.
Avvo Legal Services is built upon the success of Avvo Advisor, which enables people to connect with the first available attorney in their area for a 15-minute advice session.
At launch, the new products are available in 18 states (Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin). Additional geographies, practice areas, and service offerings will become available in the coming months. All legal services come with a satisfaction guarantee.
