EAGAN, Minn., Nov. 3, 2010 - FindLaw.com, the most popular consumer legal website (www.findlaw.com), today launched a new mobile version of its leading website at m.findlaw.com. Mobile FindLaw puts the power of FindLaw and its legal information resources into the hands of consumers and businesses when and where they need it. Currently designed and optimized for the iPhone and Android devices, and compatible with other popular mobile devices, Mobile FindLaw provides convenient mobile access to essential FindLaw resources, including:
- FindLaw Lawyer Directory, the largest and most popular online lawyer directory with more than 1 million people searching for an attorney each month. Mobile users can quickly and easily search for attorneys in their area, whether by name, location or practice area. Users can view information about the attorney and law firm, map their office location in Google Maps, and contact them from their mobile device via phone or e-mail.
- Learn About the Law, which contains hundreds of informative articles and guides for the most popular areas of law, including employment, family law, personal injury, traffic laws, real estate, criminal law and small business.
In addition, Mobile FindLaw provides law firms in the FindLaw Lawyer Directory the opportunity to be among the first to reach consumers who are actively looking for legal counsel, and present helpful information about their legal expertise.
"FindLaw puts essential legal resources at the fingertips of mobile users," said Karl Florida, president, FindLaw. "People can immediately find information to learn about the law, find an attorney and connect with them wherever they are with their mobile devices. In many legal situations, having the right information and getting effective counsel in a timely manner can make a difference in the outcome of a case. In today's increasingly mobile society, we want to make sure people can conveniently access FindLaw resources whether they're on the go, at home or at work.
"Unlike other mobile websites," Florida continued, "the mobile version of FindLaw.com is not simply information squeezed onto a smaller viewing screen. We've taken FindLaw's market-leading information and optimized it for the mobile user experience. We provide the information that people need in a way that allows them to search, find and use it effectively from their mobile devices."
Mobile Internet usage grew 110 percent last year, according to a Quantcast Mobile Trends report, and is expected to continue to increase sharply in coming years as usage of cell phones, smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices grows and as wireless data networks migrate to higher speed Internet connections.
