Swipe right for legal advice? New lawyer-finding app takes a cue from Tinder
Unless you have very specific taste in romantic partners, the words “Tinder” and “lawyer” are unlikely to go together as an immediate word association. A new app hopes to change that, though. No, it’s not about finding you love with a litigator or amore with an attorney, but rather using the same matching process you’d most commonly find in a dating app, and applying it to the task of pairing up lawyers and clients for the perfect match.
The concept is simple: You download the iOS or Android app and then post a description of the work you’re hoping to have carried out. Your request will then be passed on to attorneys in the appropriate practice area and geographical location. You hear back only from those lawyers who are interested in taking things to the next level. You can also research the attorney profiles on the site to help you evaluate the best match, see how others have rated each attorney, and use the app’s searchable attorney directory to investigate further.
“Legal Services Link is solving two very serious problems,” CEO Matthew Horn told Digital Trends. “First, finding and hiring the perfect attorney is an intimidating and time-consuming process for many, and most don’t know where to start. That results in most people not having their legal needs fulfilled, which, in many cases, has lasting consequences. Second, even those that do try and have their legal needs fulfilled quickly realize that legal help is prohibitively expensive. Our platform addresses both of those issues
