Navigating the legal side of a new business can be confusing. How do you register your business? Why would I have to have my employees sign NDAs? What is arbitration? Do I have to have arbitration in my employee onboarding forms?

It can be hard to justify hiring a lawyer to answer all these questions when you’re on a very tight budget, as most new businesses are. Fortunately, much like the medical field, technology is quickly catching up to the needs of the consumer.

In today’s world, customer service is key for businesses to last. The rise in demand for affordable, accountable, and highly responsive legal services is something the industry cannot ignore. Some may argue that faster service isn’t worth a loss in quality. But, in an age where clients can access almost any information through the internet, faster service is becoming the standard. Many legal services have already begun trying to meet the needs of their clients. There are well over 20 law based mobile apps, though most of them are fairly limited. The two most common types are those that try and sell you a legal plan or those that act as limited legal directories.

For an ideal legal mobile app, there are a few things you need to look for. First and foremost, you should look for an app that has the backing of lawyers with excellent track records. Additionally, you should expect 24/7 service, legal counseling, document review, and IRS audit services.

We’ve seen the need for this kind of service in our community as well. LegalShield offers our members a $20-per-month plan that provides you with a host of services: including, advice on an unlimited number of topics, trial defense hours, and so many more.
