GLENDALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LegalZoom has helped millions of Americans with their legal needs over the last 14 years, and has now achieved another industry milestone through their trusted network of attorneys. Independent legal plan attorneys have completed 200,000 consultations with LegalZoom customers searching for quality legal help.
LegalZoom has been at the forefront of legal innovation for the last decade, battling systemic issues that place access to the law beyond the reach of middle-class America. The U.S. is home to close to 1.3 million attorneys, yet in California, the wealthiest state in the nation, 2 out of 3 people in family court don’t have a lawyer. Leveraging the power of technology and people, LegalZoom makes legal protection accessible to more families and small businesses.
“One of the challenges we have faced is the fear based notion that technology will replace lawyers.” said John Suh, CEO of LegalZoom. “We are proud to have reached this substantial milestone of 200,000 legal consultations with our network of attorneys. The key to continuous evolution of the legal system is for more lawyers to embrace technology that can increase quality and efficiency. Everyone has a right to quality legal help.”
“Working with the LegalZoom plan members, our attorneys can focus on researching and answering legal questions for members without the normal constraints of marketing, administration and other tasks that take them away from their true calling: helping people,” said Mark L. Russakow, Esq., of Russakow & Tan, LLP, a California firm that has been part of the LegalZoom network for four years. “This cost efficiency has helped our firm experience explosive growth with a very high level of customer service as well as unprecedented job satisfaction for the plan attorneys. The LegalZoom plan greatly expands the access to the legal system for the average American and is clearly the future of how consumers and businesses will interact with our legal system.”
