Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PressExposure) May 17, 2011 -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Legal Playground, a company dedicated to bringing the legal community into the 21st century, announced the launch of its website and iPhone app, designed to connect consumers with lawyers via the internet and mobile devices. In its pre-launch BETA, Legal Playground was already labeled the "Craigslist for Lawyers" by UrbanDaddy, and specially featured in KillerStartUps, WebAppRater and FeedMyApp.
Despite advances in technology, a significant number of law firms and lawyers still fail to connect with clients and prospective clients through the Internet. Legal Playground was designed to bridge this gap and assist lawyers in adapting to the digital revolution. While maintaining the integrity of the profession, Legal Playground brings a touch of personality to the cyberspace medium.
On both the site and app, consumers can easily search for lawyers by name, firm, practice area, or location. They can view profiles, blogs, videos, and podcasts to learn more about lawyers and contact them for representation. Alternatively, consumers can submit a free post to the online Bulletin Board, and interested attorneys can immediately read and respond to the postings. Through the app, they can stay in touch with their favorite attorneys by viewing up-to-the-minute posts, blogs and photos.
For lawyers, the site and app demonstrates to clients and potential clients that they are in sync with the latest technologies. In the virtual environment, lawyers can publish their professional resumes, engage in web-blogging, share online videos and documents, and have clients and prospective clients follow them on a dedicated mobile app. As a premium member, lawyers can gain access to the online Bulletin Board and be the first to respond to consumer postings and attorney referrals.
The time has come for the legal profession to embrace the latest technologies. Legal Playground helps them do it with ease and credibility.
