A new startup named Lawdingo lets you search the database on the legal situation you are in and the location. It gives you results along with Yelp ratings and rates for every minute or hour. Of course, some are also free for the first five minutes to fifteen minutes.
You may have heard of LegalZoom, but this is different because with Lawdingo you get a chance to talk to someone real.
Another cool feature with this website is that it allows you to schedule an appointment with a lawyer. So either through TokBox or Twilio (video and audio)you can have a conversation. You can also see if they are online at that time or not, and if they are online you can hit the “talk now” button right there and then.
With Lawdingo the most ideal thing is that you don’t need to go looking for an attorney because they are a just a search away. Nikhil Nirmel, the CEO and founder of this startup says that it can save money for users because although lawyers are encourage to offer free consultations for a set duration only, users can still save money on and time by visiting offices and then finding the right attorney.
For now there are 205 lawyers in 36 states that are on that platform and 180 appointments have already been scheduled. I say that is pretty darn good.
The company was founded sometime early this year by Nirmel. For more information log on to their site and let us know how your experience with them has been.
Lawdingo is currently making money by charging attorneys a monthly fee with also a money back guarantee for the first month. Nirmel is very proud to say that till now no one has asked for a refund as yet.
The firm is in public beta and is based in San Francisico.
