Avvo product update

New customers + more products = more money to attys.

80% of people with legal problems don't hire attys. Even affluent people don't hire attorneys. We make it to hard for them to hire us.

59% of people do DIY in legal, and 42% of those end up hiring an attorney.

77% of people say lawyers are too expensive.

Products for up-front entry-level work with clients: Avvo Advisor (15-minute phone calls), doc review (30-45 minutes sessions), end-to-end services creation to filing, available in nine types of law (e.g., criminal, family, real estate). In 18 major states now. Will add many more this next year (including UT). Will get paid in full, up front on everything you do with avvo, and complete control of your availability.

These sorts of products will help attorneys broaden your client base.

If you engage with these services and serve client's through them, "verified purchase" moniker to any review left on avvo. These verified purchase reviews will increase your search ranking on avvo.
