Small law firms use the many legal professional resources FindLaw has to offer every day. We hear praise and tips from many of these attorneys on our Facebook and Twitter accounts all the time. Now FindLaw has been spotlighted by another great community with the 2012 New York Law Journal Reader Rankings.
FindLaw was recently recognized by New York Law Journal as one of the best legal research tools for small law firms. Based on a survey by Journal readers in which over 6,800 voters participated, FindLaw made it to the podium based on a variety of features on our website, including: legal research, technology products, litigation support, recruitment and legal education.
Placing second behind our sister company Westlaw’s WestlawNext research product, and ahead of Google’s Google Scholar online tool, FindLaw is particularly proud of the fact that our legal resources are offered to all of our visitors for free. That’s right — not only do attorneys find our content valuable for legal research, they also get what they are looking for free of charge.
More than just legal research, FindLaw also offers small and mid-size firms other great resources to help grow and optimize their practice, including: practice guides, newsletters, legal blogs, state and federal court forms, sample contracts and other great materials that we are updating daily to give our visitors the most relevant content possible. So thank you to everyone that uses our site and make sure to check out all the great resources we have to offer not only legal professionals — but consumers as well!
