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.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
Most of the time there is a lot of work involved to move to the cloud, and most of that isn't really related to AWS or Azure or Google Cloud. Before we talk about public cloud vendors and DevOps tools, there are usually several technical and non-technical challenges that are connected to it and that every company needs to solve to move to the cloud. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Stefano Bellasio, CEO and founder of Cloud Academy Inc., will discuss what the tools, disciplines, and cultural...
21st International Cloud Expo, taking place October 31 - November 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Me...
‘Trend’ is a pretty common business term, but its definition tends to vary by industry. In performance monitoring, trend, or trend shift, is a key metric that is used to indicate change. Change is inevitable. Today’s websites must frequently update and change to keep up with competition and attract new users, but such changes can have a negative impact on the user experience if not managed properly. The dynamic nature of the Internet makes it necessary to constantly monitor different metrics. O...
With the rise of DevOps, containers are at the brink of becoming a pervasive technology in Enterprise IT to accelerate application delivery for the business. When it comes to adopting containers in the enterprise, security is the highest adoption barrier. Is your organization ready to address the security risks with containers for your DevOps environment? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Chris Van Tuin, Chief Technologist, NA West at Red Hat, will discuss: The top security r...
Agile has finally jumped the technology shark, expanding outside the software world. Enterprises are now increasingly adopting Agile practices across their organizations in order to successfully navigate the disruptive waters that threaten to drown them. In our quest for establishing change as a core competency in our organizations, this business-centric notion of Agile is an essential component of Agile Digital Transformation. In the years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, the conn...
The nature of the technology business is forward-thinking. It focuses on the future and what’s coming next. Innovations and creativity in our world of software development strive to improve the status quo and increase customer satisfaction through speed and increased connectivity. Yet, while it's exciting to see enterprises embrace new ways of thinking and advance their processes with cutting edge technology, it rarely happens rapidly or even simultaneously across all industries.
Many organizations are now looking to DevOps maturity models to gauge their DevOps adoption and compare their maturity to their peers. However, as enterprise organizations rush to adopt DevOps, moving past experimentation to embrace it at scale, they are in danger of falling into the trap that they have fallen into time and time again. Unfortunately, we've seen this movie before, and we know how it ends: badly.
These days, APIs have become an integral part of the digital transformation journey for all enterprises. Every digital innovation story is connected to APIs . But have you ever pondered over to know what are the source of these APIs? Let me explain - APIs sources can be varied, internal or external, solving different purposes, but mostly categorized into the following two categories. Data lakes is a term used to represent disconnected but relevant data that are used by various business units wit...
There is a huge demand for responsive, real-time mobile and web experiences, but current architectural patterns do not easily accommodate applications that respond to events in real time. Common solutions using message queues or HTTP long-polling quickly lead to resiliency, scalability and development velocity challenges. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ryland Degnan, a Senior Software Engineer on the Netflix Edge Platform team, will discuss how by leveraging a reactive stream-based protocol,...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
Many organizations adopt DevOps to reduce cycle times and deliver software faster; some take on DevOps to drive higher quality and better end-user experience; others look to DevOps for a clearer line-of-sight to customers to drive better business impacts. In truth, these three foundations go together. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit 21st Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Co-Chair Andi Mann, industry experts will discuss how leading organizations build application success from all...
The last two years has seen discussions about cloud computing evolve from the public / private / hybrid split to the reality that most enterprises will be creating a complex, multi-cloud strategy. Companies are wary of committing all of their resources to a single cloud, and instead are choosing to spread the risk – and the benefits – of cloud computing across multiple providers and internal infrastructures, as they follow their business needs. Will this approach be successful? How large is the ...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
"NetApp's vision is how we help organizations manage data - delivering the right data in the right place, in the right time, to the people who need it, and doing it agnostic to what the platform is," explained Josh Atwell, Developer Advocate for NetApp, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The “Digital Era” is forcing us to engage with new methods to build, operate and maintain applications. This transformation also implies an evolution to more and more intelligent applications to better engage with the customers, while creating significant market differentiators. In both cases, the cloud has become a key enabler to embrace this digital revolution. So, moving to the cloud is no longer the question; the new questions are HOW and WHEN. To make this equation even more complex, most ...
One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, Solutions Marketi...
Leading companies, from the Global Fortune 500 to the smallest companies, are adopting hybrid cloud as the path to business advantage. Hybrid cloud depends on cloud services and on-premises infrastructure working in unison. Successful implementations require new levels of data mobility, enabled by an automated and seamless flow across on-premises and cloud resources. In his general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Greg Tevis, an IBM Storage Software Technical Strategist and Customer Solution Architec...
