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."

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
