I agree with Ryan's review of LegalMatch. I found their service to be an effective way to pre-screen clients and find cases that were right for my practice. First, LegalMatch allows me to choose the geographic location from which I wish to review client cases, thus already dwindling my potential client pool to a much more manageable scope. From there, I can review the cases submitted by these clients and choose to pursue whichever cases fit my monetary or time constraints. By limiting the scope of cases I receive, and therefore have to review, I have found that I can be more efficient and effective in my current caseload than I would normally be otherwise. Overall, Legalmatch is a great tool to use for an attorney looking to grow their practice while also limiting the costs and time usually associated with weeding out unfruitful cases and clients.
Before using LegalMatch as an attorney, I had a family member direct me to the site after they used it to learn more about a legal issue affecting another member of our family in a different state. They found the service effective for studying up on their legal issue, and eventually used it find an attorney in the local jurisdiction. So, not only is LegalMatch effective in allowing you to preview your potential clients, but it also helps connect you with clients from different areas that might have had trouble finding your services otherwise.
