FindLaw Turns a New Page With Free Mini Guides

FindLaw is far more than just the No. 1 legal website where millions of consumers learn about the law. With our recently launched FindLaw Mini Guides, we’re turning a new page by offering another way to take our legal knowledge with you wherever you go.

FindLaw’s Mini Guides are free legal-information pamphlets that you can download as PDFs. You can then read them at your leisure on a computer or tablet, without having to go online. You can also print out the Mini Guides and keep them handy (for example, our Guide to What to Do Following a Car Accident can be kept in your vehicle), or share them with family and friends.

We may call them Mini Guides, but they’re big on useful detail.

"I think of each Mini Guide as a little website inside," said Kevin Ahlvin, FindLaw's Director of Business Marketing.

To create FindLaw's Mini Guides, Ahlvin and FindLaw's team of lawyer-writers first took a look at the most popular legal topics from FindLaw's Learn About the Law section. They then pulled together the most important pieces of legal information about those topics, and wove them into simple-to-read summaries, easy for non-lawyers to digest.

The result is a series of informative Mini Guides on a wide (and expanding) range of topics.

Family law topics like our guides on Spousal Support and Getting Child Support Payments are consistently popular. In this current economy, our guides about Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and What to Do After Losing Your Job are also among our Top 10.

Because they're free PDFs, you can print as many copies as you want and give them to relatives or friends. You can even share the PDFs by posting them on social media, as we've done on our Facebook and Google+ pages.

In all, two dozen FindLaw Mini Guides can now be downloaded for free, and additional titles are in the works. It's just another way FindLaw is empowering our millions of monthly visitors with legal knowledge you can literally take with you.
