No, this is not an advertising gimmick or a tabloid headline. We believe that we can provide free services while satisfying both sides, that is, both lawyers (big law firms) and their potential clients.
As a novice lawyer, you will surely search for the cheapest or ideally free way to promote your legal services. Probably every lawyer knows internet websites such as Rocket Lawyers, Avvo, Super Lawyers, HG... Their advantage lies in the high number of visitors and the amount of useful editorial articles that can direct you in the right direction. For example, on the Avvo website you can create your legal profile, including pictures and detailed information about yourself as well as your colleagues, and if you are good, you will soon gain plus points in the form of high-quality reviews and high user ratings. It is only natural that with such positive feedback you may soon expect an increased interest in your legal services.
On the Internet, you may find various articles that promise 3, 5, 10 and more ways how to promote your services as a law firm. However, watch out for tricks. Some websites will promise you free advertising, but after your registration and the trial period, they will silently and automatically extend your profile – however, this time it will not be free of charge. With us, you need not worry about such practices. We do not charge any fees to our registered lawyers or other users. Our goal is to connect supply with demand and provide people who are searching for a cheap and reliable attorney with enough options. And that is why we offer the above mentioned free services for lawyers.
How is it that we can offer free advertising to law firms?
Now you may think that our services are not completely free of charge and that we will want something from you after all, but do not be afraid :) In addition to offering you the possibility to create your legal profile, you will also be able to edit your "legal signature" where you can add any text you like as well as a link to your website that represents your services. Your profile will be displayed along with every comment you post, during a chat with a user as well as in other threads where you can respond to posts by other lawyers. We know from experience that this is one of the most effective forms of advertising not only for lawyers but also for other kinds of services where a customer wants to check the skills and abilities of selected individuals (firms).
You can start right now by signing up and creating your legal profile that, by itself, can bring you many benefits. If you would like to start building your brand and your reputation as a lawyer, you may search for the most recent questions asked by users that are related to your field of law and start answering them.

New customers or even a new contract can come right away. It all depends on your skills and willingness to respond to questions asked by users in the free Legal Advice Center.
A criminal defense lawyer is a lawyer (mostly barristers) specializing in the defense of individuals and companies charged with criminal activity. Some criminal defense lawyers are privately retained, while others are employed by the various jurisdictions with criminal courts for appointment to represent indigent persons; the latter are generally called public defenders. The terminology is imprecise because each jurisdiction may have different practices with various levels of input from state and federal law or consent decrees. Some jurisdictions use a rotating system of appointments with judges appointing a private practice attorney or firm for each case. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criminal_defense_lawyer
