Online Lawyer Referral Services in Essex County NJ
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.
AskALawyer, PersonalInjuryLawyerReferral and LegalMatch are all online referral services that serve the residents of Essex County. PersonalInjuryLawyerReferral is limited in scope because it only makes referrals in personal injury cases. Although they state that all of their lawyers are "highly" experienced they fail to provide information on any of their attorneys.
AskALawyer is different from PersonalInjuryLawyerReferral because it allows you to ask a free question to any of the attorneys they have in their system. By looking at your case they decide which attorney works in the area of law in which your case resides and then you are allowed to ask that attorney one question to see how they respond. Once you receive a response you can see if you are satisfied and if you want to continue working with this particular attorney. This allows you to see how the attorney may handle a legal question you have and the attorneys usually respond within 24 to 48 hours.
Even though this system is different from the other referral agencies located in Essex County it still does not provide you with the ability to choose from several attorneys at one time. You also do not receive an estimate at how much your total case may cost or even how much this attorney's hourly rate is. Furthermore, you are not given background information on the particular attorney that you ask a question too except that they practice in a specific area of law.
The only lawyer referral service in Essex County that provides you with cost as well as background information is LegalMatch. This attorney matching service allows you to choose from several attorneys that are interested in your case. After filling a short form your case will be sent to several attorneys who practice in the area of law in which you need help.
When an attorney does contact you they are required to provide you with an estimation as to the total cost of your case, plus their hourly wage. Also, you receive background information and a guarantee backing up all of LegalMatch's attorneys. No other service provides you with a guarantee and in addition this entire service is at no cost to you.
