Rocket Lawyer(TM) Helps Businesses and Individuals Take Proactive Approach to Legal Wellness With Personalized Legal Health Scores and Membership Plans

Online Legal Service Combines Do It Yourself Affordability With Easy Access to Professional Legal Reviews From Over 100,000 Attorneys Across 50 States

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/19/10 -- Rocket Lawyer™, the fastest growing online legal service, today announced the availability of a free Legal Health Score™ along with the launch of new and comprehensive legal plans that empower businesses, entrepreneurs and individuals to take a proactive approach to understanding and managing their legal needs. Packed with new features, the Rocket Lawyer legal membership plans deliver the helping hand needed by the busy individuals and business managers of today.

Rocket Lawyer members get all the tools they need to create, edit, share and archive important legal documents on an ongoing basis, along with important reminders about the next steps required to make it legal. Rocket Lawyer membership also includes comprehensive insights into each member's legal wellness with features like the Legal Health Score, a number from 1 to 100 that helps everyone understand their legal situation and how it compares to best practices for optimal legal health.

For example, if a person does not have a Last Will and Testament, or if a business owner does not have legal contracts in writing, the Legal Health Score will be low, and Rocket Lawyer will create a personalized legal plan with step by step guidance to improve the Legal Health Score. Combining the easy to understand Legal Health Score with simple guidance, interview-driven legal documents, a legal calendar, finishing tools and a nationwide attorney network, businesses and individuals now have a complete solution for managing the legal issues that everyone faces over a lifetime.

"We're listening to our customers, and what we've heard is that legal services can be intimidating, confusing, and expensive," says Dan Nye, president and CEO of Rocket Lawyer. "We have an important mission to empower people to get the legal protection they need at a price they can afford. Rocket Lawyer's improved personal and business legal plans, including our Legal Health Score, are a big step forward."

In this tough economic climate, consumers and companies are more cautious than ever about how they spend money, but legal matters still arise, often causing worry and significant unplanned costs. Rocket Lawyer enables small business owners to easily manage multiple legal projects from their online account for peace of mind and savings. From incorporating a business to putting important contracts in writing and hiring employees, everything created with Rocket Lawyer is securely recorded, stored and can be shared and accessed by all parties through the same online legal service.

With Rocket Lawyer, businesses and individuals can:

  • Get a clear snapshot of their legal situation and legal risks in just minutes, with a personalized Legal Health Score. Easily create important legal documents like Wills, Power of Attorney documents, Incorporation filings, Employment Contracts and more. Users just answer a few simple questions to build their legal documents, and Rocket Lawyer provides step by step legal help for finalizing them. Legal documents can be downloaded, shared, printed, e-signed and used immediately.
  • Complete most legal documents paperlessly with Rocket Lawyer, using the sharing and e-signature features, which is better for the environment than printing and easier to keep track of as the business grows.
  • Track and finalize legal documents with next steps, including a personal legal calendar, reminders and alerts for important legal events.
  • Archive important legal documents securely online for worry-free safekeeping.

"People will be amazed at how much they can do to keep themselves and their businesses legally healthy," said Jennifer Mazzon, vice president of product management at Rocket Lawyer. "Rocket Lawyer helps people get it done in a way that's simple, fast and cost-effective. It is truly the best way for individuals and businesses to manage every aspect of their legal life, and connect with attorneys from the Rocket Lawyer community when they need additional advice and counsel."

Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
