Lawyers… Finding a good and trustworthy lawyer can be tough. Finding an amazing lawyer like Saul Goodman (Better Call Saul) is even harder. Not unlike investors, lawyers can become long-term partners. So, if after some wining, dining and heavy petting you decide to call it more than a quick fling, then before splashing the cash on that ostentatious diamond ring, make sure you’re taking the right decision. Someone you can trust, who has the necessary experience for what you’re looking for and someone you wont mind cuddling up next to in front of the fireplace for the next 20 years. This also applies for the inverse. It’s not easy for a lawyer to find a client especially, if they don’t belong to a large firm.
Founded by real-life lawyers, LawYeah! makes finding and speaking to a lawyer simple, easy and damn right engaging. No red tape, no goose chases or retainers, all you need is an internet connection. Within a few clicks you can speak with a list of specialized lawyers for free.
Having just pivoted its business model, this Barcelona startup is now focusing on creating a direct connection between a client and a lawyer by offering real time communications. It works a little something like this: search lawyer by specialty, location, availability. You can then review the lawyer profile, areas of specialization, reviews etc. Then with a click and a blink of an eye you can chat with them using a choice of Videoconference, Chat or Private message.
The client can select more than one lawyer and have a “Lawyer Off”. Each lawyer can explain how he/she would approach the situation at hand an how much they would charge, allowing the client to decide which option works best for them. Using such personalized methods as video conference gives the client the ability to get to know the lawyer and decide whether they possess the qualities they are looking for (experience, attitude, eye colour) thus increasing the possibility of a successful conversion.
Following first base, the idea is that the client and lawyer will take things to the next level. Lawyeah! ensures that the lawyers pass through a strict approval process, picking active lawyers with experience in myriad sectors who are prone to using technologies (social media, blogs etc) as communication tools as to guarantee that someone will be online to talk to you!
At this moment Lawyeah! is in Beta and it’s free for both the clients and the lawyers. In the near future, they will apply a monthly subscription service for lawyers.
The ex-lawyer team, based in Barcelona is formed by founder & CEO Alexi Fernández and co-founder & Product Director Cristian Sans who together have more than 20 years experience in international business development and web development.
