Time is running out!
If your friends, family, former clients, or even you have a story about when "life gets legal," FindLaw would love to hear it. It could help someone win $5,000 and a chance to be featured in a FindLaw ad. The two runners up in this contest will receive $1,000.
The only thing contestants have to do is create a video about their very own legal story and how FindLaw.com helped them by December 12.
FindLaw is not looking for a commercial; we just want to know how FindLaw was able to help a legal consumer to:
- Learn about the law or the legal process
- Help you make an informed decision about your particular legal issue
- Help connect you to an attorney or
- Answer your legal questions
All contestants have to do is sit in front of a camera and tell their story. The story with the most votes by December 31, 2010 wins the contest!
As of now, the entry submitted by Michael Vasallo is in the lead. He explains how his car got damaged at a car wash, but that the owner of the car wash refused to pay for damages. Once Michael learned more on FindLaw.com, he was able to convince the owner to pay for the damage to his car.
However it is still anyone's contest. FindLaw has five entries that have been submitted in the following areas of law but please note that contestants can enter a legal story about any area of law:
- Negligence, respondeat superior
- Child Custody
- Personal Injury
Remember, there are only ten days left to submit an entry! It could be your FindLaw story that wins $5,000.
