During the holiday period arrests spike in Toronto due to seasonal party
going and RIDE program enforcement, these people need lawyers fast.
TORONTO, Dec. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - LaunchLawyer Inc. is pleased to announce its hyperlocal GPS smartphone
app that allows an individual to connect with and get the protection of
a lawyer with the push of a button. The app, free to download,
connects registered users with available lawyers within a GPS geofence.
When used, the app provides a connection to an available local lawyer
who has agreed to speak immediately.
"By bringing together our service with smartphone and hyperlocal gps
technology we solved the connection problem and dramatically reduced
the time it takes to get a lawyer" said Murray Simser, LaunchLawyer's Founder and CEO.
For the individual facing arrest there is a negative relationship
between the time it takes to hire a lawyer and the potential legal
outcome. LaunchLawyer is novel because it ensures a lawyer is
available, willing and able to help immediately. Print directories,
online directories, online search and referral services do nothing to
speed up the process of getting a lawyer's protection, they simply
alter the means of locating contact information.
"It is an elegant solution to a complex problem that delivers measurable
benefits to law enforcement, lawyers and the hundreds of thousands of
people placed under arrest each year in Toronto." said Mr. Simser.
Law enforcement agencies looking for ways to stretch resources achieve
better results. For police there is a material waste of manpower and
resources when a lawyer is unavailable because of the associated
inefficiency of arrest procedures and the associated costs of handling
the arrest. Timely access to lawyers correlates to an increase in the
efficiency of the policing and enforcement system by freeing up
manpower and enforcement resources.
Through the use of the dedicated lawyer focused Case Watch App,
available in the Blackberry App Store or through mobile browsers,
lawyers receive notifications of available cases.
LaunchLawyer pays a fee to lawyers to be available to speak to the app
user increasing early stage revenue generation. The efficiency of this
method of client acquisition frees up significant time for billable
revenue generating activities. It also reduces the required spend on
advertising since the hyperlocal nature of the app pairs app users with
lawyers without the need for marketing intermediation.
LaunchLawyer Inc. is available in the Apple and Android stores. The
rollout will take place first in Toronto, Canada then to all major
metro areas in North America over the next several months. It was
dreamed up and founded in 2012 by a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and an
Ivy League lawyer to solve a serious issue in the legal field - timely
access to lawyers.
