LawRato.com, India’s leading lawyer search and legal advice platform launched the country’s first self-help Facebook messenger chat bot today Nicknamed “LawBot”, the chatbot that lets users search for legal answers, ask a free legal question and find the best lawyer for their legal requirement. Users can also book a consultation with the lawyer recommended by the bot by paying a nominal consultation fee. The bot can be accessed through https://m.me/lawrato/, or by sending a message at LawRato’s facebook page.
Available across India, LawBot allows users to enter their legal problem in the form of a question and throws up the most relevant answers and recommended lawyers for the particular problem using an AI algorithm developed in-house at LawRato.com. The users can then either continue by booking a consultation with one of the recommended lawyers, or submit their question to the LawRato.com lawyer network which is then answered for free by one of the network lawyers within minutes.
For example, if a user types ‘How can a husband get child custody after mutual divorce’, LawRato.com’s LawBot through its real-time search algorithms throws similar answers by lawyers and recommends the top 3 divorce lawyers in the user’s city at the LawRato.com platform.
Founded in Jan 2015, New Delhi based LawRato.com is India’s leading legal advice and lawyer search platform. With 1500+ top verified lawyers from multiple practice areas across 200 cities in India, LawRato has answered more than 20,000 legal questions asked by users at its platform and has helped over 2000 users consult and hire the right lawyer for their legal requirement so far.
“We realized that a many users were uncomfortable in revealing their details while seeking answers to their legal queries. Although users can reach us through our phone helpline and a post-a-question options, more users start the conversation through chat, choosing anonymity due to the nature of their legal problems. Many just want to check their options, and know the repercussions of their actions, before they actually go ahead and consult a lawyer.
LawRato’s LawBot helps you access the collective wisdom of our legal partners, providing access to our 50,000 lawyer opinions for over 20,000 legal topics, ranging from matrimonial issues to criminal defence. LawBot has also been given a character of its own and it tries to have conversation that lightens the serious legal mindset of the user. Try asking it to find “the cheapest lawyer”, or “how to get out of jail”.
“We want to make good legal advice easily accessible and confidential, and believe that the LawBot will allow more people find solutions to their legal problems in a better way. As more users interact, LawBot gets smarter at finding the best answers and lawyers.” says LawRato’s co-founder and CTO Nikhil Sarup.
