The Lawyers of Distinction (L.O.D.), which boasts of an illustrious inventory of 3,000 lawyers, has now launched a new search feature for its member attorneys. With this added aspect, anyone can now search L.O.D.’s website either by geographical location or by specialization. Searching for members lawyers using both keywords is also possible.
In terms of functionality, the L.O.D. directory is matchless and profiles of the members are meticulously comprehensive. The profiles invariably include a comprehensive biographical segment. However, the section that chronicles the reviews from Avvo, Google, and Yelp, makes the website most distinctive. Features like Google maps add further efficacy to it.
“We wanted to facilitate ease for those looking for legal counsel. The aim is to ensure access to subjective and objective information and data for the user so that he/she can make an informed choice in affairs of legal counsel,” said Jason Brodsky, Founder of Lawyers of Distinction.
According to the ABA, nearly 1.3 million lawyers and attorneys practice law in the U.S. Add to this the 35,000 fresh ones who enter the country’s law scene every year and you can have a fair idea of how crowded the profession is. The new feature of L.O.D.’s website creates a unique user experience by helping the website visitors narrow down their search. Since L.O.D. is not into lawyer referral service, it keeps away from referring particular attorneys to clients. The absence of privileged listing or promotion through banner or external adverts gives further credibility to the membership, which is solely created for the benefit of common people.
“Legal affairs are sombre episodes that can make or break not only an individual but the entire family. Getting represented by an efficient attorney or lawyer is the most integral part of any legal issue. With the sheer surplus of law practitioners in the U.S., it often becomes very difficult even unnerving for someone lacking specialized knowledge, to identify the right professional. Our categorized online search can help seekers of legal counsels zero down their hunt for the right kind of representative in an easy and efficient way,” opined Brodsky.
Member attorneys of L.O.D. come from all the 50 U.S. states and also from the territories of Puerto Rico and Guam. International members from Japan, Canada, Europe, Central America and Australia give the organization a true global image and reach and diversity emphasizes the accomplishment and recognition of Lawyers Of Distinction.
“Excellence in 20 specific areas, including both civil and criminal, is recognized by Lawyers of Distinction and all our members are nominated by peers or apply through independent research. No political affiliation is acknowledged in the organization and we strongly abstain from plaintiff and defendant prejudices,” Brodsky emphasized.
For more than 5000 daily users, the website is fast emerging as a resourceful platform to access and retain efficient legal representation from the country’s top attorneys.
Selected through strict review and screening methodology by the selection committee, membership at Lawyers Of Distinction goes exclusively to professionals with high-level competence and industry recognition. The fact that membership at Lawyers of Distinction is limited to 10% of attorneys in a particular state, reveals the rigor of the selection process and in turn warranties an assurance of authenticity to the clients who look for lawyers through the website’s online search.
