This year we asked you, our audience, in what format do you most like to read your legal information. And the number one response to our survey: in a downloadable PDF. users like the freedom of downloading legal information to have as a resource on their computers or printed out. We heard you and heeded your request. In April we launched the first wave of FindLaw legal guides for download.

We are now up to 17 new guides – and counting. And true to your survey answers, FindLaw users are downloading more and more of PDF guides each month.

We launched the content in April with titles like “The FindLaw Guide to Getting Child Support Payments,” “The FindLaw Guide to Chapter 7 Bankruptcy” and a host of others.

As you can see, these FindLaw guides focus on everyday legal issues that many of us experience.

Now, after four months on, there has been 91% growth in PDF downloads, month over month. And with more legal guides coming online each month, there will be even more opportunities to download a helpful guide.

It’s easy to see why the legal guides have become increasingly popular. After all, when a legal issue comes along it can be daunting. Many American’s first step is to go online for help.

Each guide features basic background information and links back to FindLaw’s Learn About the Law and other sections of the site for more details. They also feature help understanding when you should seek advice from a lawyer and assistance with finding a qualified local attorney.
