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.

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.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
