With nearly half a billion dollars flowing to startups in the 'legal vertical' you have to stay vigilant about these services and products.
What happens when we are quiet about those things we should question? We become unwittingly complicit. And what happens when companies not bound by professional rules of conduct who are heavily financed, entice those who are starved for clients? Potential trouble. Are you getting into trouble and not realizing it?

I personally think rules governing referral fees need to be revamped but as along as they exist, you have to ask the tough questions because you're the one they'll go after...especially in this new program.
If you throw a hungry dog a steak, he's going to eat it without even sniffing it first to see if it's rotten. A well-fed dog is more discerning. This was my first reaction to the new Avvo's Legal Services after I read a snapshot of this service on Bob Ambrogi's Lawsites. You should really ask a lot of questions before you take a bite of this beef.
