Frequently Asked Questions

Questions? We Have Answers.

How much does it cost to use

It doesn’t cost you anything. Your attorney will pay a portion of their own fees.

What if I don’t like the lawyer I’m matched with?

We make every effort to match you with the best lawyer for your situation. Like many things in life, our best intentions might not always work out. We understand. If this is the case, or even if you’d like a second opinion, just contact us and we’ll find a better match for you.

Why should I use

You don’t know many lawyers, but we do. We’ll consider the details of your case and pair you with a lawyer who specializes in your issue.

Do I need a lawyer for my case?

Do you cut your own hair? Lay your own tile? Perform your own dentistry? No. Of course not. You hire a professional because you know the results will be much better than what you can do if you try to do it yourself. The same is true for legal issues. Lawyers know and understand the laws and statutes that affect your case. Lawyers are professionals, and they will get a better outcome than you can get on your own.

What about that lawyer I saw on TV?

Don’t let hiring a TV lawyer be your first mistake. Typically, lawyers who have big advertising budgets run their law firms like a mill. They churn out cases by the dozen, focusing on closing cases as quickly as possible with little regard for getting the best possible outcome for their clients. Clients seldom actually meet the lawyer in the ads, and many big-name lawyers don’t even work on cases at all. Cases are typically handled by staff lawyers and paralegals, and are often farmed out to other lawyers throughout the city without the client ever knowing.

How about that lawyer with the fancy billboard?

Friends don’t let friends hire billboard lawyers.
