Numerous studies have shown middle income Americans who earn too much to qualify for legal aid yet can't afford an attorney in the traditional sense have significant unmet legal needs. The same goes for small business owners. Online pro se self-help legal services are becoming more abundant, but at what cost to the consumer?

To compete with these free legal services, lawyers are choosing to add virtual services to extend their client services online with document generation and review. Are these services good for clients? For lawyers? There is also a different online legal service model aiming to match lawyers with clients, either by facilitating an introduction for a specific need or by offering access to a network of lawyers through pre-paid legal services.
