In 2009 Google started offering legal research and eDiscovery services (Postini), and now Google announced that it invested $18.5 million in which bills itself as the “fastest growing online legal service.” Forbes reported that founder Charley Moore:

…the firm has 70,000 users a day and has doubled revenue for four years straight to more than $10 million this year.Rocket Lawyer provides online legal forms, from wills to Delaware certificates of incorporation, that non-lawyers can fill out and store and share on the Web. For $19.95 a month, consumers can also have their documents reviewed by a real lawyer and even get legal advice at no additional cost.

Obviously Google sees the legal business as the place to be, and likely portends changes in how legal services are provided.
