New York, NY (February 25, 2021) – LawChamps, an online platform that helps lawyers succeed in the age of virtual and remote work, has launched. Led by an experienced and diverse team which includes Jennifer McGlone, Esq., President & Chief Legal Officer, Mike Muse, Chief Strategy Officer and Drew Koven, its CEO; the platform provides the digital tools and services that lawyers need to easily develop and enhance their online reputations and grow their client base cost-effectively.
“Before co-founding LawChamps, I was a practicing attorney for 20 years” shares CLO, Jennifer McGlone. “I know first-hand how difficult and time-consuming it is, especially for solo and small firm attorneys, to work on business development and run their practices. Lawyers want to focus on helping clients and practicing law. This is what inspired me to create LawChamps.”
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought a heightened awareness to the law with consumers wanting to know and protect their legal rights. According to the Quality Judges Initiative, over 100 million cases are filed each year in state trial courts (ABA, 2017).
70% of professional service workers, including lawyers, are working virtually and remotely. The majority expect this to become permanent or semi-permanent. It’s more important than ever for lawyers, especially solo and small firms, to create a strong online presence and the digital acumen to build relationships with clients anywhere, anytime. LawChamps provides the technology to build the next generation of successful law practices, with exceptional customer service and real time communication support (Forbes, 2020).
“LawChamps is in the relationship-building business,” affirms CEO, Drew Koven. “Our amazing customer service team provides individual attention to our lawyers and potential clients who need them. We’re on the front lines, taking calls and responding to live chats in real time, using proprietary technology to understand, simultaneously match and connect those who come to us looking for lawyers with them, right away.” Attorney members can leverage the LawChamps platform to develop and maintain a positive online presence through customizable profiles, verified ratings, reviews, and website development, as well as receive inquiries from potential clients well-matched to their practice and expertise. LawChamps onboards its attorney members to optimize their success.
CSO, Mike Muse co-founded LawChamps because of its social mission: “The integral core to my work is advocacy; making sure there is equity in the space of entrepreneurship, understanding the importance of owning your intellectual property and access to affordable legal representation to change criminal justice outcomes,” says Muse. He advances this mission by partnering with those who share and complement the Company’s goals, social media influencers and advisory board members, including Brandon Pettijohn, Esq. of Coastal Legal Counsel and Beilal Chatila, of Chatila Law, LLP. “I really enjoy partnering with LawChamps,” explains Pettijohn, an attorney and popular TikTok influencer whose short clips on the law have garnered millions of viewers. “I’ve teamed up with LawChamps to take my informative content further by connecting my audience, those who need legal support, with the company’s attorneys.”
Attorney Beilal Chatila has acquired new clients through the platform and is spreading the word to his peers about the benefits of LawChamps: “LawChamps is a client growth driver for my practice. They offer great results and amazing support.”
