Walmart is now selling legal services in some of its supermarkets in Canada, Find Law reports. Axess Law, founded by Toronto lawyers Lena Koke and Mark Morris, has three of it's four current offices (with one more on the way) in Walmarts in Ontario. According to the Toronto Star, the firm practices on a volume model, which allows them to charge low rates, such as $99 for a will or $25 for a notarized document. While the United States has strict rules on non-lawyer ownership of firms, Find Law says that if a firm were to simply lease space in multiple Walmarts, without sharing profits or ownership, it would likely be legal.
