A variety of options are available to individuals seeking to use an online attorney referral service in Fresno County. Web-based referrals are available through Lawyers.com, Attorney Pages, Attorney Search Network, and LegalMatch. These services differ in regards to cost, turn around time, information provided, background checks, satisfaction guarantees, and benefits.

Lawyers.com essentially operates as an online phonebook exclusively featuring attorney listings. Each listing includes basic information concerning the attorney. In order to use Lawyers.com as a resident of Fresno County, you must input your geographic location and the type of law that your case falls under. After completing these tasks, you will receive a will list attorneys matching your criteria. Although basic details such as contact information are provided, Lawyers.com does not provide past client reviews or information concerning attorneys’ billing structures

Attorney Pages is much like Lawyers.com. After submitting information regarding your geography and legal issue, a list of attorneys is displayed on the website. The information provided about each Fresno County attorney is very minimal—even less than Lawyers.com. Most often, only an address and phone number is given. There does not seem to be any minimum qualification for an attorney to be listed on this website, so there is no guarantee that the attorney you call is in good standing with the California State Bar.

Attorney Search Network is listed on the California State Bar's website as an attorney referral service for Fresno County. This service requires you to either call or submit an online application where you describe your legal situation. Screeners at Attorney Search Network will then determine whether or not you need an attorney. If it is determined that you should seek legal attorney, the network will refer you to one with experience in the appropriate area of law. This service only refers you to one attorney, and there is no guarantee that the attorney you are referred to will take your case. Attorney Search Network does not provide any attorney background information during the referral process.

LegalMatch provides a more comprehensive, user-friendly approach to finding an attorney online. Rather than selecting an attorney for the user, LegalMatch allows the user to play an active role in attorney selection process. After he client submits basic regarding their legal issue, LegalMatch sends out e-mails to pre-screened attorneys who might be interested in taking on the case. The client then receives e-mails directly from interested attorneys. At that point, the user is able to view each attorney's profile, billing structure, and past client reviews. Armed with this information, the client is able to select the attorney that best fits his or her needs. Most of the time, clients obtain responses from a number of attorneys with experience in the appropriate area of law. LegalMatch also provides users with a satisfaction guarantee.
