Websites offering coupons and daily deals are all the rage. Why should lawyers be left out? No longer need they be, thanks to a new feature of MyLegal.com that offers special deals on products and services targeted to lawyers, paralegals, legal secretaries and legal administrators.
MyLegal.com already provided a directory of legal vendors and, early in 2011, it added user reviews of vendors (although reviews remain scant). Starting in October, it added vendor deals, enabling vendors to offer discounts on their products and services. You can sign up to receive each day’s deal by email or you can visit the site and browse the list of deals. There are no coupons to buy; instead, you simply send an email asking to be given the deal.
On a recent visit, the listings of deals included a digital-evidence company offering $2,000 off trial technician services, an office supply company offering $25 off a purchase of $75 or more, a jury consultant offering half off a jury memo, and a court reporting firm offering two free hours of its services.
To view these deals, there is no cost or registration required. For that reason, you have nothing to lose by checking this site before purchasing goods or services for your law office. Who knows – you might just save a few bucks.
