Shpoonkle bears the critical markers of a successful "start up" that often are associated with high growth, technology oriented company, and tremendous scalability. The 21 year old entrepreneur Robert Niznik recognized the opportunities in the legal services industry for change and evolution. Many critics felt Shpoonkle was a wild risk with little chance of success. Niznik states "the time is right for change and Shpoonkle."
Some of the factors helping Shpoonkle become successful include: consumers like the idea of controlling an aspect of their legal costs that they often feel helpless about. Many people are now recognizing that even in tough times they can still afford an attorney. Shpoonkle is about empowerment for the client, but it also empowers many lawyers who through a flooded market, downsizing, and/or lack of clients are experiencing tough economic times. The good news for client and lawyer alike is that Shpoonkle works. People get the help they need and lawyers connect with clients.
Other critical and differentiating aspects of Shpoonkle's services are that they validate every attorney member's identity and license. Clients have the peace of mind of knowing that they are communicating with a quality attorney who is in good standing and licensed. Communication is completely anonymous. Only licensed attorneys can view any of the case details. Shpoonkle is a true reverse auction as attorneys can see the competing bids of other lawyers. Competition is a powerful force in making legal fess affordable. The site does not refer you to a lawyer it connects you to one who wants you as a client. The service is free to members and allows access to anyone needing justice they can afford.
The process of "shopping" for an attorney often includes spending countless hours visiting many different lawyers' offices, and recounting the same issue over and over again in the hopes of finding legal help. This is a time consuming and intimidating ordeal for many people. The result is that many clients find out they simply cannot afford the hourly fees. The lawyers spend long wasted hours consulting with clients they will never see again.
Time, convenience, and approachability are huge commodities for consumers who want immediate access to safely and confidentially shop for legal help from the privacy of their home.
Shpoonkle caters to those who are often under represented and at a disadvantage when seeking legal help. The success and appeal of Shpoonkle is not limited to the United States. A recent launch into Canada and pending international services offered within the next fiscal year prove Shpoonkle is reaching a global audience.
Shpoonkle spells success for the legal services industry.
