Law on Call, the first law firm to be owned entirely by nonlawyers in the U.S., opened its doors recently in Utah, the ABA Journal reports. The firm’s opening is a result of sweeping changes to legal services regulation in Utah that were approved by the Utah Supreme Court in August. The two-year pilot project allows law firms with nonlawyer owners and nontraditional legal service providers to operate in a “regulatory sandbox” in the state. Law on Call clients pay $9 per month to get unlimited phone access to lawyers who can offer advice in the areas of business law, end-of-life planning, contracts, employment, housing and real estate. If legal work is needed, the discounted rates start at $100 per hour.
