LegalMatch, Compared

I haven’t posted about LegalMatch for several months, though my LegalMatch posts continue to draw comments weekly.   In a comment to my initial “Why I’ll Never use Legal Match” post, reader Maury gives an unbelievably complete summary of all of the legal referral sites out there, along with his “grades” for visibility and cost. 

Maury appears to work for a lawyer referral service himself, but the information seems pretty reliable.  If you are looking for a comprehensive comparison of most (if not all) of the legal referral web sites out there (and Maury covers over 100 of them!), scroll down through the comments to the LegalMatch post.  Thanks Maury!

    I was informed that I was mentioned in one of your blogs, so being narcissistic by nature, I had to check it out.

    I just wanted to clarify my position and web site. I am a lawyer in Minneosta (also licensed in Wisconsin). My website at divorceprofessionals.com (one of several doorway pages) was my office website. I merged my practice with a large 18 attorney firm in 2003 (hjlawfirm.com) but continue to maintain my own website to generate clients.

    The list of legal directories I created was a prodict of my own trial and error as an office owner.

    Nice blog by the way.

    I am not sure that the post by Lance Burton of Legal Match provides much of an “informed response”, although it does provide some pretty pictures of Legal Match’s employee’s engaged in all sorts of games.

    That is about as substantive as it gets.

    Legal Match haas increased their prices significantly. For family law, the annual fee for just the metropolitan area is around $9,000.

    Fortunately, Legal Match will allow you access to the leads to determine whether or not they are any good.

    In reviewing those leads, I found that the inquiries for criminal defense were garbage. The people inquiring were simply looking for free information. There were also numerous inquiries for civil issues like people claiming that the police were to rough or violated their civil rights. In short, the leads were garbage.

    Legal Match claims that these are screened leads. After a review, I seriously doubt it. Either that, or the screeners don’t have a clue what a good lead is and what a bad lead is.

    It still looks like a waste of money.
