Shpoonkle… The Simple Steps.

Earlier today, I read two different articles “Ebay for Lawyers” and “Feds Must Stop Writing Gibberish Under New Law.”  So I said to myself “How can I incorporate these two articles with Shpoonkle?”

Shpoonkle prides itself on being a site designed to help people find legal services they can afford.  However, it is also important for everyone to know is that one of the key things essential to Shpoonkle’s success is communication.   It is important that agencies are able to communicate with the public in a way that is clear, simple, meaningful, and jargon-free.  Bad writing discourages people from coming to the site, make rules and instructions hard to follow, and waste money.

“People just want to know what are you going to do for me or to me?”  Most of what people write is just too much stuff for the public to comprehend.  The significant part of Shpoonkle is that its a “service that provides people with more options” but these options are presented in a concise and clear way that makes it easier for the members to understand.

By giving the public options you’re also introducing that not one person’s issue is more important than another’s because of the amount of money they can afford to spend on a case. ”  “Even people without means need legal advice.”  “There’s nothing sacred about legal advice, and there’s nothing sacred about flipping through the yellow pages to find an attorney.”


Shpoonkle Connecting Through Social Media

We are living in an age in which everyone has a Facebook, Twitter, and maybe a few of us still has a Myspace. Instead of sending postcards to our family members from faraway places we simply post a “i miss you” on their Facebook wall. So its no surprise that connecting people didn’t just stop with socializing.  Now its a way to conduct business.  With Shpoonkle clients and lawyers are connecting through a social media outlet.  This is a faster way of going through a sometimes long process.

Social media helps many businesses because it’s free advertising.  To post statuses, links, pictures, and notes about your company you’re drawing people in.  By them reading or looking at what is being posted they may become interested in what’s being presented.  For Shpoonkle,  connecting through social media is proving to be a beneficial venture.

Benefits of Shpoonkle for the legal community

Each year thousands of students graduate from law school with the hopes of working for a major law firm making $200

dollars an hour.  However, the realistic view of this is that will not happen for everyone.  Many of these students will not be able to find a job.  Shpoonkle can be a lending hand to the newest crop of lawyers and even seasoned lawyers thats also looking for employment.  At Shpoonkle lawyers can sign up, make a profile, and advertise themselves for potential clients.

When lawyers make their profile on Shpoonkle they are able to select areas of expertise/practice,  review case details and bid on the cases their interested in.  Shpoonkle is not solely about helping out clients by providing them with affordable service but also to lawyers who are seeking employment in a competitive job market.

Outsourcing: The Latest trend.

When people think of outsourcing they think of cars, telephone operators, 
and professions in the health field.  But according to recent studies, lawyers 
are the latest profession that’s being outsourced to companies overseas. 
Due to the economy looking bleaker than ever, the notion of spending 300 hundred 
dollars an hour on a lawyer versus 70 dollars seems unrealistic. That’s where 
Shpoonkle comes in.  Shpoonkle is a company made for people by people to ensure 
the best quality for your dollar.  Shpoonkle is a site where people can find lawyers,
obtain legal advice, and participate in forums with lawyers.  The concept of being 
able to find and hire a lawyer within your price range, privately, and with 
attorneys who really care is at the core of Shpoonkle.

Student Resources

Many times law students are burdened with an overwhelming heap of cases to brief.
On Shpoonkle, there is a section titled “student resources”, this part of the website provides
help to law students who are looking for information on particular case briefs.  
This section is filled with over 1,500 cases.  There will be over 10,000 more uploaded soon.  
This attractive part of the website will benefit law students greatly and is free.  
The case studies are translated in many different languages; from English to Hebrew.  
Looking up different case briefs are easily navigated, they’re organized by title, date, author,
 and the ratings from users of the site.  Furthermore, if you’re someone that’s interested in
 assisting you can also upload your case brief to the Shpoonkle.
