SCORE and Rocket Lawyer™ Partner to Provide Legal Resources to Entrepreneurs

Washington, D.C. - SCORE, – www.score.org- America’s premier source of free and confidential small business advice, has partnered with Rocket Lawyer, a comprehensive online legal service, to offer useful legal tools, templates and resources to SCORE’s clients and volunteer mentors.  In 2011, the score.org website received nearly 5 million unique visitors seeking trusted, informative small business advice.  Through its partnership with Rocket Lawyer, SCORE small business clients will gain access to pertinent articles, e-guides, webinars and how-to videos concerning how to protect their enterprise within the law and even use the legal system to their advantage.

“Our partnership with Rocket Lawyer will remove the apprehension and doubt experienced by so many small business owners when it comes to all things legal,” remarked SCORE CEO, Ken Yancey.  “We specialize in providing a broad spectrum of easy-to-use tools and trusted information to entrepreneurs. This partnership with Rocket Lawyer is a natural fit and a sure benefit to the American entrepreneurs we serve.”

“We know this partnership with SCORE will be a valuable asset to their members. Having access to affordable legal services is critical for every successful business,” said Charley Moore, founder and chairman of Rocket Lawyer.  “Our services will empower them to make the law a competitive advantage, instead of a liability to their business.”

On January 26, 2012, SCORE will host a live webinar with presenter Charley Moore, Founder and Chairman of Rocket Lawyer, entitled “7 Ways to Legally Bulletproof Your Business in 2012.”  The webinar will guide attendees through best practices for small businesses who want to use the law to gain a competitive advantage.

In addition, SCORE’s network of 13,000+ volunteer mentors will gain free access to all of Rocket Lawyer’s online resources and a tailored, live webinar covering the best ways to utilize these tools when mentoring SCORE clients.
