Rocket Lawyer

Published

Most of us will require the expertise of a lawyer at some point in our lives, and traditionally that expertise has been relatively expensive to obtain. Rocket Lawyer is changing that by providing affordable access to legal assistance over the Internet.

"Rocket Lawyer is created to give people a really simple, easy and most importantly affordable, and often free, way to do those basic [legal endeavors]" explains Charley Moore, Founder and Chairman of Rocket Lawyer. "Whether it's to do their own estate plan, get married, get divorced, start a company and hire the first few people, you could do all that on Rocket Lawyer either free or at a fraction of the traditional cost."

The range of legal services for which Rocket Lawyer can provide assistance is limitless, and there are essentially four broad options for accessing the service:

— Do it Yourself: You answer a series of questions, and the site provides the proper provisions to include in a legal document based on your answers.
— Do it With Me: You prepare the document and submit it for review by one of the attorneys in the Rocket Lawyer network.
— Do it For Me: You select an attorney from within the network to complete the work, and that attorney will often do so at a discounted price.
— Learn More: You can access the vast library of help articles, videos, podcasts and blogs to get better informed about the law.

The site will walk you through the steps necessary to make your documents legal in all 50 states, and often times the entire process can be completed paperlessly online. "By taking this to the cloud," says Moore, "we've really helped take law into the next generation. Everything here is in the cloud, so all you need is a browser. You can use Rocket Lawyer on your phone, you can use Rocket Lawyer on your iPad or anywhere you can access the Internet, and everything you do is there, because it's all browser technology."

Rocket Lawyer must be onto something, as this four-year-old company typically has between 1.5 and 2 million visitors per month. "There's a search box on every page making it really simple," explains Moore. "What we want you to be able to do is tell us your situation, and we help you find a resource or solution for it."
