FEB. 27, 2006

FreeAdvice.com (http://www.freeadvice.com), the leading consumer-oriented legal advice and information website, today announced the launch of a group blog, Legal Soapbox ( http://www.legalsoapbox.com). Legal Soapbox complements the information and interactive forums on FreeAdvice.com, which helps people and business owners find answers to their legal questions and solutions to their legal problems.

What do lawyers say behind closed doors? What do they really think about legal aspects of current events and consumer issues? By contributing to Legal Soapbox, attorneys, legal scholars and expert witnesses now share their professional opinions and advice on a wide range of topics such as the Blackberry litigation, the death penalty or how to get insurance claims paid. The group blog provides a platform for legal experts and law bloggers to comment on breaking legal news, court decisions, proposed legislation, newsworthy trials and their significance to the public. Legal Soapbox also features the latest legal news stories from the Associated Press, as well as notable new court decisions and links to other popular law blogs.

The Legal Soapbox blogging platform was customized to deliver an easy-to-use, superior blogging experience even for first-time bloggers, and experienced law bloggers can use it to promote their existing blogs. Legal Soapbox also features a unique advantage in the blogosphere, verifying the credentials of its authors through its affiliate ExpertPages.com.

Edo Amin, editor, Legal Soapbox, was formerly a columnist for Ha’Aretz, Israel's leading newspaper, and is recognized as a “founding father” of that country’s Internet. “Legal Soapbox provides the benefit of a ready audience. As an adjunct to FreeAdvice.com, Legal Soapbox delivers millions of interested readers. Our contributors enjoy unprecedented exposure,” commented Amin.

“Our sites have gained international acclaim for providing the best advice on the Web for more than a decade,” stated Gerry Goldsholle, CEO, Advice Company. “Legal Soapbox allows legal experts to have a voice, provide up-to-the-minute commentary and extend the conversation, enhancing the level of interaction and value provided to our site’s visitors. Legal Soapbox represents the first step in our plan to add blogs to all our information and advice sites.”
