Rocket Lawyer Enhances Legal Document Service With New, Patented Ask a Lawyer Feature

Reveals Top Three Legal Questions From SMBs

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2014) - Rocket Lawyer, the leading online legal service serving small businesses and consumers, today introduced an enhancement to its patented legal document experience. In an ongoing effort to improve access to legal help, the popular feature Ask a Lawyer now gives members the power to submit questions directly to its network of On Call® attorneys while creating their customized legal document. This unique Q&A feature streamlines the entire online legal process by providing access to professional help from a trusted lawyer within one business day.

"We know that navigating the legal system can be complex, so our aim is to remove any anxiety and guesswork surrounding it," said Charley Moore, Rocket Lawyer CEO and Founder. "Whether you're developing documents for your small business or creating your estate plan, these documents are just too important to leave questions unanswered. With Ask a Lawyer, we provide access to expert advice every step of the way. Our patented feature provides our customers with the confidence and clarity they need to get their legal questions answered with ease."

This announcement comes at a time when small businesses are reevaluating their business practices for the coming year. Rocket Lawyer has identified the top three pain points of small businesses: legal practices around hiring and firing employees, staying compliant with evolving local and federal laws, and understanding how to protect trademarks and intellectual property. Customers can now alleviate these pains with the enhanced Ask a Lawyer feature, which provides timely expert counsel on issues like these that impact their business.

"I think this is a great idea," said Davina Gauthier, Rocket Lawyer member. "One usually has questions in completing legal documents and it's nice to know there's someone on the other end who will answer within 24 hours. It's a reassuring part of the whole process. It's a definite plus."

Rocket Lawyer's On Call® attorneys are also available for customers who have more complex business needs or legal issues, such as resolving a dispute, arbitrating business deals, or advising if a matter should proceed to litigation. Attorneys are carefully vetted and selected to be a part of the On Call® program, and in return they offer their services to Rocket Lawyer members at a discounted or reduced billing rate.
