New York, NY, December 25, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- LawNearMe is the first website to allow prospective clients to find, research and book a consultation instantly with an attorney best suited for their needs, all in one place.
LawNearMe was founded by Samuel Shusterhoff, an attorney, with the mission to improve and modernize consumer's access to legal assistance. Shusterhoff launched the startup at the beginning of 2014 as he felt the timing was perfect, the demand was there. After the recession and the resulting shortage of jobs, applications to law schools saw a huge increase. This increase created a major saturation in the legal industry, with more lawyers then ever competing for not only jobs but clients as well. The response from the legal community was nothing short of welcoming, “from day one, lawyers were contacting us and signing up before we even went live,” Shusterhoff commented. The attorneys are receiving clients on a weekly and sometimes daily basis. LawNearMe is a great way for attorneys to obtain new clients in a tough market.
LawNearMe is now building a sales force and expects the number of attorneys to triple by the end of year two. LawNearMe is quickly becoming the #1 way for consumers to connect with lawyers.
