Avvo expands legal services coverage to four new states


On the heels of recently announcing new options for their fixed-fee legal services, it appears Avvo is widening the availability of those services as well. Residents in Tennessee, Minnesota, Missouri and Oregon have now joined 18 other states in which Avvo has rolled out their full suite of legal options.

A range of options

Avvo’s services start at $39 for a 15-minute legal advice session or $99 for legal and document review, and cover a variety of routine legal scenarios for business, estate planning, immigration, family, and real estate matters. Samples include options like an advice session with a divorce and separation attorney, creating a last will and testament with an estate planning attorney, or starting a business by forming an S Corp, C Corp, or single-member LLC. All offerings are handled through local, experienced attorneys of the user’s choice.

“When it comes to legal situations, many people are paralyzed by fear and end up not acting in their best interests when really, all they need is a small amount of legal advice from an experienced attorney to move on,” said Sachin Bhatia, chief product officer at Avvo. “We designed Avvo Legal Services to help people take control of their life situations by connecting them with the right lawyer they choose in the amount they need, through a modern online shopping experience.”

All attorneys providing legal services through Avvo are Avvo-rated and have detailed profiles explaining their background for a level of openness not found in other legal service offerings. Participating attorneys only offer services in their areas of professional focus.

75% of the US population covered

With the new states added, Avvo now delivers over 23,000 individual legal services in 22 states, which covers over 75 percent of the U.S. population. These states are Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. Additional geographies, practice areas, and service offerings will become available in the coming months, and all legal services come with a satisfaction guarantee.
