Yesterday, I received two after-hour voice mails that went something like this, "Hi, I’m Bill Johnson and I have some clients in your area in urgent need of a matrimonial lawyer. Please give me a call as soon as you can at XXX-XXX-XXXX." The number is not toll-free, but a long distance number on the west coast. I’m not calling it this time, but I’ve fallen for this ruse before. The caller is not an attorney seeking to refer a client, but rather LegalMatch, a for-pay lawyer referral company. They don’t have a client in "urgent need of my services," but want me to sign up for their costly service to have them send me prospects. Many lawyers I’ve spoken to don’t think highly of the company’s claims. I can’t vouch for their services, but their deceitful telephone pitch really pisses me off. If they are trying to sell me a product, tell me so.
