Law Question Website

I wrote about a site called AskingLaw several months ago. The site is a law Q&A website that is taking off in the right direction. In fact they are generating between 6K-10K unique visitors a month (they supplied me with their traffic reports). Great for a site that has been around for less than a year. I have their RSS feed on my site.

The site caters to consumers looking for answers to their legal related questions, very similar to this site, however we don’t have the ability of allowing our viewers to ask questions. The reason for my post isn’t so much for the reader but for the attorney.

We write marketing pieces every now and then on this site. Something that we’ve not mentioned is your ability to market your firm on Q&A sites. The great thing about AskingLaw is you don’t have to have a log-in to ask or answer questions. They even allow the person answering questions the ability to link to their site and put their full contact information on their answers (great for exposure and picking up new clients).

There is no doubt in my mind if I were a practicing attorney ,I certainly would be participating on this site to market my own practice. The other nice feature that they offer is the ability to upload their RSS feeds. I like RSS feeds for several reasons. As an attorney you could upload one of these feeds to your site or even bookmark it on your browser. For instance, if I’m a practicing personal injury lawyer I may want to bookmark their personal injury RSS feed. Check it once a day, answer a few questions and get some nice link exchange which ultimately will lead to new clients.

There are other services on the internet very similar such as lawguru and findlaw. I think it would be advantageous to look at all three services, however, a free service without having to sign-in is ideal.

If anyone else has any other cool legal sites, please feel free to share.

  3. If the grantor of 2 lots conveys one lot (A) that is landlocked but A uses a dirt raod through lot B, but then grantor sells B without staeting the right of way easement to the new owners who want a gated community and A is taking grantor and the new purchasors to court to declare easement by necessity–what can I use for defense. The easement has not been recorded and the dirt road runs right down the middle of lot B.

    Mosanto manufactured s-54 Astro Turf used on playing fields. It often had annual remnants of 100,000-300,000 square feet, which it sold to others. The MM company was formed to make golf tee mats out of it. When MM placed orders, Mosanto called to find out what the company was doing . MM refused to say, but id did inquire wheter Mosanto would enter into a contract for the purchase of all of it remnants. MM was told it would have an unenting supply. MM said it hoped Mosanto would not make its mats. Mosanto said that tit was a supplier of products, not a fabticator. Three years later, mosanto formad a subsisary which produced artificial turf product, including golf tee mats. Mosanto greatly increased the price of the tiurf to MM, so that Mosanto”s mats would be much cheaper.
    -MM sued Mosanto for breach of contracts. Was there a contract?
