OnLine Legal Services: The Future of the Legal Profession


This is a statement before the American Bar Association Ethics 20/20 Commission at a Hearing in Orlando, Florida, February, 2010.

The statement discusses the delivery of online legal services over the Internet, and how rules of professional responsibility can function as a deterrent to innovation in the delivery of legal services. Certain ethical rules have the effect, in my opinion, of making legal services higher in cost than they should be, and unresponsive to what the average consumer really wants.
