Who is SelfHelpLawyer.com?

Selfhelplawyer.com is part of a wider operation for amcooperative.com and has been in business since 1992. They offer a virtual office for lawyers who can use the website to market their services. Lawyers are able to set their own budgets and control the information that is sent out to clients. The homepage collects data from interested clients and this is then passed on to lawyers. Lawyers pay a fee to use the service of the virtual office. The virtual office then contacts lawyers in the locality of the customers and passes the details on. Selfhelplawyer.com sends out personalised mailers to the customers which incorporate the lawyer’s details. In this way both parties are aware of each other. This theoretically helps customers to make more informed choices about who they wish to help them out of their financial crisis.

Website User Experience Preview

The homepage captures the client’s information. The client enters their zip code, the number of children they have, their income and then they are required to estimate how much debt they have. The website then takes them through to a second online form, short and easy to complete, which requires more details about variety of debt, name and address etc. You can then be connected to a live adviser, or someone will contact you from the company.

Information is collected both actively and passively on the website. The active collection of data comes from the forms completed in the initial stages online, but passive information in the form of internet protocol address, cookies, tags and navigation data are also collected, although this is standard across the internet on the whole.
