WikiLaw for Entrepreneurs

An online webapp-type system that is:

::: simple and graphic to navigate the forms/laws necessary to abide
::: compiled by entrepreneurs as they're learning the ropes
::: peer-driven
::: law students/professors/professionals can contribute as well
::: free to use. Revenue can be generated by connecting users to attorneys and collecting commissions, ads, sponsorships etc.

Is it viable?

    I think that'll be a good idea.
  • Apr 3 2013: What are you trying to do? Why? etc. etc. etc. That's the problem with do- it-yourself legal things. Is it really that expensive to talk to a lawyer? When
    I used the lawyer referral service - Tarrant County Bar Referral and the State Bar of Texas Referral limited us to twenty dollars for the first thirty minute consultation. While I know that people often know exactly what they want to do - What they want to do often has nothing to do with their situation. There are excellent books from Ten Speed Press and others, but law is more local than some people realize. We've had a number of discussions about divorces, but filing fees etc. can be a good part of the cost. Is it really unreasonable that an agreed divorce can cost almost as much as the Prom? Some people think so even in complicated cases.
