Canadian Notaries and Paralegals Now Getting Served on Shpoonkle

The Canadian Legal Services Marketplace Is Diverse in Its Choices of Practitioners; Shpoonkle Is Stepping Up Its Services to Accommodate All With a Medium to Make Justice Affordable in Canada

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Sep 28, 2011) - Shpoonkle recently launched its free services in Canada and has had a warm welcome by the legal marketplace and consumers. Lawyers, Paralegals, and Notaries are embracing Shpoonkle and its methodology to help Canadian legal consumers find the help they need for a price they can afford.

The website is seeing high numbers of registrations in the few days since its launch and last week's press release of the free services.

The Canadian Legal Model is different than the United States. Nonetheless, the need is the same for a centralized medium that allows legal practitioners to find more clients and to help consumers find affordable legal solutions any time, any place, and on any device. Paralegals and Notaries play a very critical role in the Canadian legal marketplace, and Shpoonkle is providing free access to those professionals. "We are trying to extend as many legal opportunities to the consumer as possible to get the affordable legal help they need by the right legal provider," stated Shpoonkle CEO Robert Niznik. "We are working hard with Shpoonkle Canada president Jamie Benizri to assure that Shpoonkle serves the demographic in a way that is productive with the needs of the Canadian consumer."

"Shpoonkle makes sense to the Canadian Legal Marketplace," Benizri said. Shpoonkle validates every legal professional on its site to assure that the client is dealing with someone who is licensed and in good standing.

Paralegals are licensed, and legally entitled in Ontario to provide certain legal services. Paralegals in Ontario are bound to the same ethical standards as lawyers and are also required to carry insurance. Paralegals are able to do routine legal services typically done by attorneys. Paralegals are often a cost effective alternative for the consumer for some legal services. Through Shpoonkle's reverse auction process, it has created a forum for the consumer to find Paralegals at competitive rates.

Historically, Notaries and their role of helping people is over 2000 years old. The Codex Hammurabi, the oldest evidence of recorded law, is one of the earliest evidence of Notaries.

Per the Notaries Act of July 2011, a Notary enrolled and in good standing may handle many areas of law except litigation in British Columbia. Shpoonkle Canada already has dozens of Notary members using the site. For more information on Canadian Notaries please visit: bclaws.ca

A recent study called Working in Canada stated, "Economic growth in Canada will slow down slightly over the next few years, meaning that the demand for professional services will be lower than over the previous ten years." Shpoonkle is not only providing a medium for member clients to find affordable legal services, but also for Canadian legal professional to broaden the reach in connecting with potential clients. Shpoonkle has also extended its services to Trade-mark and Patent Agents.

Shpoonkle is listening to its members and prospective members and providing the services needed in a format that makes sense in any country.
