About LawGuru.com


How it all started

LawGuru began as most good ideas do… as something else. In 1996, two California attorneys started LawGuru as a way to provide simple legal information on what was then a brand new medium. Originally the scope and focus of LawGuru was very narrow, providing information about their law firm and simple frequently asked questions. However, within a few months, it became clear that they were aiming too low. The promise of the Internet was much more grand. Not only could it be used to convey information, but it could also revolutionize how consumers everywhere got answers to their everyday legal questions. But change has always come slow to the law, an old profession that preferred to find comfort in the hallowed halls of its traditions.

Despite this and other obstacles, the LawGuru founders pushed forward and in 1997, the LawGuru question-answer service was born (originally called the LawGuru BBS). This pioneering service allowed users from all over the world to post legal questions on our website and attorneys everywhere to provide free answers.

Today, LawGuru.com is one of the most popular legal web sites and continues to offer as a variety of free services and legal information to the entire Internet Community. Now more than ten years later, with over half a million answers provided by our Attorney Members, it’s clear that the decision was the correct one. In that time LawGuru.com has continuously grown and evolved. Our question-answer feature even went through a few name changes and is now called LawGuru Answers. Today, LawGuru.com is one of the world’s most popular legal websites and continues to offer as a variety of free services and legal information to the entire Internet community.

But this is only the beginning, and with your help and the help of our wonderful Attorney Members, we will continue to improve. As always, LawGuru remains committed to the principles that have inspired our story from its inception – to use the Internet as an avenue to provide the public greater access to reliable and affordable legal information. Stay tuned, the best is yet to come…
