LOS ANGLES, CA, February 13, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The legal industry is undergoing an historic transformation.
Twelve major law firms with more than 1,000 partners between them have collapsed entirely in the past decade. First-year enrollment at U.S. law schools has plunged to levels not seen since the 1970s. Small law firms and solo practitioners are finding profitable work harder to find. Reading the headlines could lead one to wonder if Shakespeare's omen about the death of lawyers is coming to pass.
Although terrible for attorneys, this sea change has increased access to justice for millions of people and small businesses alike with websites offering many legal services for a fraction of the cost of what a lawyer would charge. Now, consumers are about to get an even better deal.
Newly launched online service LawDeal.com promises Do It Yourself legal forms
for the masses. Best of all, it's free. No document preparation fees. No monthly subscription fees. No sneaky "free" trial periods. Just plain free. "LawDeal is an innovative solution to an age old problem - overpriced attorney fees," says Bruce Crair, Former President/COO at @evoice and Local.com
is based in Los Angeles and founded by practicing attorney and technophile, Thomas G. Martin.

My main goal is to build offerings people want," said Martin. Free legal consultations with licensed attorneys are also available through LawDeal.com's toll-free number, 1-844-LAWDEAL.
