Indy Lawyer Finder
Indy Lawyer Finder is an online-based free service that connects individuals seeking legal representation with the attorney who best meets their specific legal needs. The site allows users to search for a lawyer based on more than 20 areas of law and compare attorneys on a variety of criteria, including fee structure, office location, legal approach and much more.
Careful attention is paid to ensure that the number of attorneys in each area of the law represented on the site appropriately reflects the search traffic in order to deliver quality return on investment for all panelists.
Competitively priced at $150 per month for up to three major substantive categories, Indy Lawyer Finder is the Indianapolis area's only locally based attorney search service.
Lawyer Referral Service
An easy and affordable marketing tool for revenue building, LRS participation is beneficial no matter the size or focus of your practice. LRS can help you increase your caseload as it matches callers needing legal assistance with the right attorney. Case fees earned by LRS participants range from several million dollars to a few thousand, with average panelists earning more than $11,500 on their investment in the past year. Two colleagues earned more than $120,000 on referred LRS cases and one even made $300,000!
Quality Referrals Made Simple
LRS pre-screens more than 40,000 callers each year, and more than 16,000 referrals are given annually. Referrals are made to LRS panel members on a rotating basis. LRS callers are matched with attorneys based upon their specific legal need. Panelists can select from up to five of the nine major areas of the law listed in the LRS contract.
Streamlined Electronic Reporting
LRS offers panelists a convenient online reporting format that saves time and expedites the reporting process.
