    Introducing Legal Services Link™: Online Exchange Connects Consumers, Businesses With Qualified Attorneys

    Speed, Quality and Transparency Finally Come to the Lawyer Hiring Process; Clients Post Summaries of Legal Needs, Then Qualified and Interested Attorneys Respond


    CHICAGO – (April X, 2016) – It works well when searching for a contractor, bank, new car or babysitter. And now, using a process that’s convenient, trustworthy and designed specifically for the legal profession, there is an online way to connect potential clients with the perfect attorney for their needs: Legal Services Link™.

    Based in Chicago but with a growing base of respected attorneys in cities across the U.S., Legal Services Link is a new website that connects consumers and businesses with lawyers perfectly suited to their project, in minutes. The online platform is free for clients and only costs attorneys a small annual fee.

    “Most clients don’t know where to begin when trying to find an attorney in their location with the right expertise, background, price range and availability,” said Matt Horn, an attorney and co-founder of Legal Services Link. “The process can take hours, even days. And while there are a lot of lawyer directories out there, there is no way to quickly and anonymously find the perfect lawyer for a project or case. Legal Services Link is the solution.”

    To use Legal Services Link, clients first register on the website at no cost; they then post short summaries of their project, answering several questions about the qualifications, location and range of fees they desire from their lawyer. Legal Services Link then emails the summaries directly to all attorneys meeting the clients’ specified criteria, who then send applications to the client for review. Clients are free to accept or reject the applications received, allowing only the best-suited attorneys to contact them directly.

    “The Legal Services Link process has been proven to protect clients while simplifying and improving the search process dramatically for both parties,” noted Horn. “It’s great because it gives clients the information they need while also providing attorneys greater access to prospective clients who require their services. Not to mention that the platform is transparent, reliable, and fast.”

    Legal Services Link is a strong, yet affordable marketing tool for reputable attorneys seeking to expand their practices or firms. Priced at only $250 per year, the platform allows attorneys to connect directly with an unlimited pool of prospective clients.

    Hundreds of attorneys nationwide are already a part of Legal Services Link. The company, a member of Chicago’s respected 1871 business incubator, is aggressively expanding its reach via trade and consumer advertising, along with partnerships with local bar associations. To learn more about Legal Services Link or to join the platform as a client or legal professional, visit www.LegalServicesLink.com.

    About Legal Services Link™:
    Legal Services Link is an online legal forum connecting clients and attorneys directly via a user-and mobile-friendly website. The service is free for clients. Attorneys pay a reasonable annual fee for the ability to apply for an unlimited number of client opportunities. Registered attorneys contribute to the website’s blog, reporting on current legal issues, stories, and industry topics, while a monthly e-newsletter, summarizing all relevant postings, is sent to all registrants.

    Legal Services Link, LLC was founded in 2015 and is a member of, and located in, the 1871 Incubator at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago.

    Loyola Law School Prof. Rothman Earns Accolades for New Right of Publicity Website


    Loyola Law School, Los Angeles Professor Jennifer Rothman, a renowned expert on intellectual property issues, has launched “Rothman’s Roadmap to the Right of Publicity,” a state-by-state guide to the nationwide patchwork of laws governing the use of an individual’s identity for commercial (and sometimes noncommercial) purposes.

    Rothman monitors right-of-publicity litigation and regularly files briefs in important cases. Most recently, she and a co-author filed a brief calling on the Supreme Court to review Davis v. Electronic Arts, a case involving the use of professional football players’ likenesses in the game series “Madden NFL.”

    “The right of publicity is a hodgepodge of widely different state laws. Differences range from whether rights survive death to whether the cause of action is limited to uses in advertising to whether only people with commercially valuable identities can bring suit,” said Rothman. “Rothman’s Roadmap to the Right of Publicity provides something I’ve long wanted myself -- a 21st century interactive map with a breakdown of the key components and controversies that surround each state’s right of publicity laws. My commentary provides a deeper dive that allows scholars, practitioners, journalists and students to better understand and contextualize the law. I also wanted a place where I could bring together breaking news about the right and share my take on the issues. ”

    A frequent source of commentary in the media about right of publicity issues, including the use of celebrity images, Rothman teaches and writes extensively on the subject. Her law review articles are frequently published in top law journals and include “The Inalienable Right of Publicity” and “Copyright Preemption and the Right of Publicity.” Her forthcoming book, “A Right is Born: The Right of Publicity, Celebrity and Privacy in a Public World,” will be published by Harvard University Press.

    Created and maintained by Rothman, the site offers news, commentary and links to key resources, as well as the state-by-state legal analysis. Since the site’s soft launch late last month, legal experts have praised the website, www.rightofpublicityroadmap.com, for its compelling content and intuitive design. Reviews include:

    Rothman’s Roadmap to the Right of Publicity is an excellent new site…for anyone interested in the right of publicity (the limited right to control the use of one’s name or likeness for commercial purposes).
    -Eugene Volokh, The Volokh Conspiracy

    Rothman's Roadmap to the Right of Publicity website…provides accessible and detailed information about the right of publicity laws of all 50 states, as well as helpful information about the right of publicity in general. Whatever you think of the right of publicity on the merits, at least it’s now a little easier to figure out what it actually provides.
    -PrafsBlawg, a legal website managed by a cooperative of law professors

    The right of publicity is one of the legal rights used to protect one's likeness and name....The scope of the problem with patchwork state law can be seen elegantly with Loyola Law School's (Los Angeles) Professor Jennifer Rothman's new right of publicity website: Rothman's Roadmap to the Right of Publicity.

    Legal Funding = Legal Justice

    Over half a dozen states have already introduced bills to regulate legal funding, but what exactly is legal funding…


    Our client, Legal Funding Central is the first socially responsible, online marketplace for legal funding, connecting plaintiffs with investors in order to offer them upfront capital needed to pursue rightful claims against well-financed defendants. Legal funding can be very beneficial for plaintiffs in a variety of lawsuits but most don’t even know legal funding is available or an option to them.

    Behind the scenes, this topic is buzzing but the public knows very little about it and we would love to work with you to put to rest some common misconceptions about the industry.

    LFC provides a majority of resources for plaintiffs to make the best decision when it comes to legal funding, including the rate calculator and comprehensive guides to learn more about legal funding. Funding is available for any kind of lawsuit whether you're a single person or a business and your readers will appreciate knowing that if a plaintiff doesn't win their case, they will owe nothing back to the funder. This gives them the freedom to exercise their constitutional rights to a trail, while not feeling the financial pressure to settle for less than their case it's worth.

    We are happy to simply offer more information of Legal Funding and Legal Funding Central, scheduling an interview with founder Dylan Beynon or working with you to create a broader story on legal funding. We can provide resources and infographics from Legal Funding Central that will better help explain the industry, its benefits and options.

    BIO: Dylan Beynon, Founder
    Founder and CEO of Legal Funding Central, Dylan Beynon has a proven track record for building technology companies that make a positive impact among thousands of consumers in various markets. In 2014, Beynon founded and launched Legal Funding Central, a New York City startup developed with a mission to eliminate the financial barriers in the U.S. justice system.

    Previously, Beynon co-founded Voter’s Friend, a civic engagement startup that connected highly engaged voters with political candidates by aggregating hyper local government and election data to give voters a geo-personalized, real-time ballot.

    “McJustice”


    I am writing to you about the 50th anniversary of a landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling: March 18th will mark 50 years since the Gideon v. Wainwright decision, where the Court held that people accused of crimes who cannot afford a lawyer must be provided with counsel. Shockingly, a half a century after Gideon, many of our criminal courts dispose of cases with a “meet ‘em and plead ‘em” system that has been described as “McJustice.”

    Guilty pleas account for about 95 percent of criminal convictions. In many courts, poor people are processed without lawyers, including pleading guilty in groups, or after speaking with a lawyer they’ve never met and will never see again for 3-5 minutes. The risk of convicting the innocent is high, leaving the real perpetrators to remain free.

    The 50th anniversary of Gideon presents a time to assess the right to counsel in America. A system where all the key actors (judges, prosecutors and defense attorneys) ignore the most fundamental constitutional rights lacks legitimacy and credibility.

    Stephen Bright, President and Senior Counsel at the Southern Center on Human Rights in Atlanta, has spent a lifetime representing indigent defendants. Mr. Bright has argued and won two cases before the Supreme Court, where he got death sentences overturned because of racial discrimination. He has received the American Bar Association’s Thurgood Marshall Award and teaches at Yale Law School and the University of Georgia School of Law.

    For background, attached please find an advance copy of “Fifty Years of Defiance and Resistance After Gideon v. Wainwright” by Mr. Bright and Sia Sanneh, an attorney with the Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery, Alabama, which will be published in the Yale Law Journal.

    For planning purposes, Mr. Bright will be in Washington, D.C. attending Gideon-related events at the Department of Justice on March 15, 2013 and The Constitution Project on March 18, 2013.
