Heading out to dinner and want to indulge your hankering for spicy food? Well, with today’s technology, the power to select a restaurant is literally at your fingertips. Want to catch a late movie, but don’t want to see a clunker? That information, too, is readily accessible on your mobile device. What happens, though, if you end up in a fender bender on the way to the movies and need to call a lawyer? You’re in luck because now you can access legal resources with one quick touch thanks to the Lawyers.comsm App for the iPhone®, introduced late last week. The App is free and enables you to find and contact a local lawyer while you’re on the go.
This news follows the introduction earlier this year of the mobile-optimized version of Lawyers.com‘s popular Find a Lawyer service. Both tools were launched to provide consumers more convenient access to legal resources whether you’re on the go , in meetings, or simply unable to access a desktop computer.
The new Lawyers.comsm App for the iPhone® features one-touch exclusive client reviews and peer ratings to help you evaluate and choose a lawyer within dozens of specialty practice areas—from bankruptcy to workers compensation. It can pinpoint your current physical location to return results for lawyers or firms within your geographic area. In an instant, you will have a lawyer’s contact information—address, phone, fax and web page—enabling you to email or call the firm directly from the App, add the firm to your iPhone contacts or link to Google Maps for driving or walking directions to the firm. The App also saves your previous search history. And, if you want to get the input of friends or family, you can even send a lawyer or law firm profile to your contacts via SMS text before you initiate contact.
Life can throw you some curve balls and having legal counsel at your fingertips just might get you out of a jam. Go to the App Store now for a fast, free and easy download of the Lawyers.comsm App for the iPhone®. Access to qualified legal counsel is just one touch screen swipe away.
