The team at Greenlight has launched a new service for consumers contemplating a divorce.
“The thought that someone who needs legal help has to chase a lawyer around to schedule an appointment is ridiculous. And, it’s crazy that lawyers don’t have a fast, easy way of getting appointments scheduled with the people who want to hire them. We built this service to solve both problems,” said Carlos Caro, co-founder of Greenlight.
Greenlight makes lawyers more accessible
Greenlight’s focus is making lawyers more accessible. The centerpiece of the new service is direct calendar booking. Users of Greenlight can see the actual calendar availability of all participating attorneys and book an appointment directly from the website. Over 70% of Greenlight customers book a same-day appointment, and 97% speak to a divorce lawyer within one business day.
The website features lawyers from over a dozen law firms, and Greenlight has been consistently adding new partners to match increasing demand for the service. Greenlight creates in-depth profiles for each attorney, including a proprietary work-style matrix, to help prospective clients understand what working with a lawyer will really be like.
Greenlight “took the fear of handling business away. It was quick and convenient. And it took me exactly where I wanted to be, with great referrals to top quality attorneys,” said Theresa T., a Greenlight customer.
The value of a free consultation
But, of course, there’s no substitute for a real, one-on-one conversation when you’re deciding which lawyer to hire. This is where Greenlight really shines.
In family law, many lawyers charge for an initial conversation. In contrast, every lawyer participating in Greenlight’s new service offers free, 30-minute consultations. These consultations are designed to help consumers get their questions answered, get a realistic estimate of the costs involved in their divorce, and get a clear path forward on next steps. And, of course, to help make an informed decision on which lawyer is best for them.
After working with Greenlight, John L. noted that “finding a lawyer is difficult. It takes time to interview them and see if they are someone you can work well with. And usually the attorney bills for that initial consult: $300 for one hour just to learn if you want to hire them. Greenlight was so much better. I talked for 30 minutes each with three attorneys — for free! Then I hired the one I felt most compatible with. Great new service.”
For anyone in need of a divorce lawyer, this new service from Greenlight offers a quick and easy way to find the one that’s best for that person’s specific needs. With Greenlight’s direct calendar booking and free consultations, finding the right a divorce lawyer has never been easier.
