Michele Colucci says she started MyLawsuit.com to match lawyers with potential clients. Lawyers are encouraged to offer detailed résumés, and the site explains in simple terms what they mean so clients know what they're getting. Unlike other legal-matching sites, MyLawsuit.com doesn't charge lawyers to use the site and doesn't contain ads for lawyers. Instead, it requires clients to pay a portion of whatever they recover from the case -- and encourages attorneys to pay that on clients' behalf.
