(Chicago, Illinois – March 8, 2005) - One of the leading companies to connect consumers and attorneys online, LegalFish, LLC releases an enhanced version of its popular service. allows consumers to post their legal issue or case online, in a secure and confidential forum, and then receive offers of assistance from interested, qualified and pre-screened member attorneys.

"With our user-friendly ‘click-and-post’ environment, and features such as detailed attorney profiles, and high-touch client service, LegalFish offers attorneys and consumers a more qualitative means of engagement," said Joshua Fuhrmark, head of LegalFish’s marketing and technology services. "Attorneys can use LegalFish as an effective and streamlined marketing tool to promote their practice while consumers can log onto the site and have access to qualified attorneys through a simple click of their mouse," he added.

LegalFish member attorneys specialize in all areas of law, from corporate finance to personal injury and criminal defense, to divorce law.

It is a service that has proved most useful to small and mid-sized law firms, which make up the vast majority of the legal community nationwide. Anish Shah, Practice Development Leader and General Counsel, says, "LegalFish can help attorneys take their practice to the next level, while reducing the time and cost associated with traditional business development initiatives."

"We are an integral part of an attorney’s marketing plans. By joining LegalFish, attorneys save valuable time looking for cases, and therefore, save money. As the Internet continues to expand its reach, LegalFish is an incredibly cost-effective client development solution for attorneys," said Jude Soundar, Director of Member Services.

Soundar adds, "Once an attorney registers on LegalFish, their visibility automatically increases. Attorneys spend countless hours answering inquiries from people who may never become clients. LegalFish helps to eliminate that by assisting its member attorneys in screening potential clients and their legal needs."

Over the past three years, LegalFish has experienced rapid growth and plans keep that pace through 2005 with two new projects: (1) launching an innovative lawyer-to-lawyer referral service will allow member attorneys to refer cases to each other; and (2) cultivating its service for the United Kingdom and Canadian markets. This will allow LegalFish to target larger law firms with operations in these countries seeking international case referrals.

Messrs. Soundar, Shah and Fuhrmark founded LegalFish in 2002 and a beta version of the service was test marketed in 2003.
