The legal directory and Q&A forum Avvo today introduced Avvo Lawyers, an app  that allows lawyers to follow and answer consumer legal questions directly from their iPhones or iPads. Using the app, you can:

  • View and filter questions posted in the areas of law you follow.
  • Add or remove subscriptions to legal questions posted in specific areas of expertise.
  • Draft and post answers to questions.

Also, if you subscribe to Avvo Pro, you can use the app to respond by phone or email to prospective clients.

Consumers have posted more than a million legal questions to Avvo in the last five years, the company says.

You can download the app for free from the iTunes store.
