In trouble? Need a lawyer pronto? There’s an app for that!

The New York Times recently ran an article about a new service, called LawyerUp, that connects subscribers to attorneys in as little as 15 minutes.  Lawyers sign on and agree to be called, for a set minimum first consultation fee.  Individuals can subscribe for $4.95 a month, and agree to pay the lawyers the rate set by the service, at least for the first hour of service. The associated Android app is basically a panic button, with the service on speed dial.  Christopher Miles, the founder, who is not an attorney, says it has to be better “than a pay phone and a phone book in a police station somewhere.”
