Avvo launches service providing on-demand legal advice for a fixed fee

The ABA Journal reports that Avvo Inc., has launched a new on-demand service that provides legal advice at a fixed rate.  The ABA article begins as follows:

In a Monday post at Law Sites, Robert Ambrogi provided details of Avvo’s latest venture, Avvo Advisor. Available as an online tool or through an iOS app, users of Avvo Advisor pay $39 for a 15-minute conversation with an attorney. Users enter their ZIP code and the nature of their legal inquiry before providing their credit card and contact information. Users then get a phone call from an attorney within 15 minutes or they get a refund.

Avvo Advisor currently covers nine areas of law: bankruptcy, criminal, divorce, employment, family, immigration, landlord-tenant, real estate and small business. The service is now available in 15 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin. According to Avvo’s press release, the company intends to add both additional areas of law and additional states in the coming months.
