Avvo to Discontinue Fixed-Cost Legal Services

Avvo Legal Services will be discontinued by the end of the month, the ABA Journal reports. Avvo Legal Services allowed consumers to purchase certain legal services for a flat fee. The announcement came in the form of a letter to the North Carolina State Bar Authorized Practice Committee, which had asked Avvo to explain how their legal services offering “relates to the unauthorized practice of law.” Avvo, which was acquired by Internet Brands earlier this year, will continue to operate as a company, though it is unclear if changes will be made to their other offerings.
