HOW COLTEN'S LIST WORKS

Colten's List is an online advertisement marketplace where clients can quickly find and compare discounted legal service packages.

WALK ME THROUGH THIS

1.

Attorneys anonymously list their available service packages, including the cost, details of deliverables, and relevant dates.

(Why are the attorneys anonymous?)

2.

Client searches for packages matching their needs and purchases a selection.

3.

After making their purchase, clients are given details about the attorney providing the service, and are encouraged to contact the attorney.

4.

Both the client and the attorney will return to Colten's List and mark the offering as redeemed; this releases the payment to the attorney, and work begins.

(What if I don't want to use this attorney?)

5.

After work is complete, clients may rate their experience, giving valuable information to future clients.

CLIENTS ENJOY:

  • Discounted Legal Services
  • Transparent Pricing
  • Clear Expectations for Deliverables
  • Ability to Compare Prices

ATTORNEYS ENJOY:

  • Measurable Return on Investment
  • Visible Cost per Aquisition
  • Quick Engagement of New Clients
  • Competitive Insight

WHY DO ATTORNEYS NEED TO BE ANONYMOUS?

Anonimity allows attorneys to offer discounted rates through Colten's List that might not otherwise be offered to their regular clientele.

WHAT HAPPENS IF, AFTER I PURCHASE THE PACKAGE, I DON'T END UP HIRING THE ATTORNEY?

There are several reasons you might not end up hiring the attorney after you have purchased a legal package, including:

  1. the attorney has a conflict of interest;
  2. after talking with the attorney you have doubts about whether the attorney can meet your expectations; or
  3. you decide for any other reason you would prefer not to use this attorney.

If within 10 days from the date you purchase the legal package you decide for any reason that do not want to use the attorney and that you would like a refund, all you have to do is send an email to customerservice@coltenslist.com identifying the reason you chose not to the hire the attorney and we will refund your money.

AS A LAWYER, I CAN'T PAY FOR REFERRALS

Colten's List does not refer clients, in any way, to attorneys. Therefore payments to Colten's List are not referral fees. Colten's List is an advertising website that allows attorneys to post advertisements. Attorneys are authorized to pay for advertising services which is all that Colten's List provides.

WHAT ARE THE TEXAS DISCIPLINARY RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT REGARDING AN ATTORNEY PAYING FOR ADVERTISING SERVICES?
