Online Lawyer Referral Services in Sacramento County
LegalMatch can quickly connect you to qualified attorneys in your area. There's no cost to use this online matching service and lawyers are available for all areas of law.
Clients seeking an online attorney referral service in Sacramento County have a variety of options. Web based referrals are available through Attorney Search Network, Attorney Pages, American Lawyer Referral, Lawyers.com, Nationwide Legal Help and LegalMatch. These services differ in regards to cost, turn around time, information provided, background checks, satisfaction guarantees and benefits.
Attorney Search Network is the online counterpart of the Sacramento County Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service. Attorney Search Network functions just like the Sacramento Bar in that it requests your location and legal area and they provide a referral accordingly. The database may be different from the one provided by the Sacramento County Bar because Attorney Search Network is the online representative for several California counties. Attorney Search Network has the same issues as the other "next-on-list" services.
Attorney Pages and American Lawyer Referral are amongst the least expansive of the web-based referral sites. These sites operate as "database" referral services. "Database" referral services request the same input criteria as the "next-on-list" services but instead of providing one name, it provides all the attorneys they have available that match the criteria. No additional information is given, however, so the service essentially functions much like an online phone book. The site also doesn't appear to offer any satisfaction guarantees or minimum attorney requirements to join.
Lawyers.com is similar to Attorney Pages and American Lawyer Referral but can be distinguished because it provides some information about the attorneys. Lawyers.com functions just like a regular "database" referral site but it provides a brief description of the referred attorney or law firm in Sacramento County. This information does not include client feedback or anything expansive so further investigation on the part of the client must be done.
LegalMatch uses a very different system for their referrals. LegalMatch is a double blind system in which attorneys respond to client postings. An attorney can assess a client's case before seeing the client and can respond to the client directly though e-mail or a phone call. LegalMatch also provides expansive data about the attorneys so the client can then assess the suitability of the attorney before any initial consultation. Most often, the client will receive responses from several attorneys and may choose between them. LegalMatch is free to use and there are no obligations. LegalMatch is also unique for their satisfaction guarantee.
