Self-help website shut down

September 11, 2008

SeattlePI.com reports that Washington Divorce Online has ceased operations in Washington State after admitting that it has been offering legal services without having any attorneys on staff. This company operates in all fifty states according to their website. We know they operate in North Carolina as their Washington State website is identical to their North Carolina site (no link provided as we didn’t want to spread our Google juice to them).

It’s funny because when we first noticed the site we thought it was a local lawyer. They have a picture of a pleasant looking guy on the home page and I thought it was a solo practitioner figuring out how to offer his services on the web. I bet a lot of other folks get that impression as well.

One wonders if the North Carolina State Bar or Attorney General is investigating this provider. Are investigations underway in other states?
