About LawBrain

LawBrain is a project of FindLaw, a Thomson Reuters business, that is the world's leading provider of online legal information and Internet marketing solutions for law firms.

More About FindLaw

FindLaw's roots go back to 1995, when two attorneys compiled a list of Internet resources for a group of law librarians in northern California. The response to the material was so positive they decided to post the information on the Internet.

Launched on Jan. 9, 1996, FindLaw.com soon offered a mix of cases, statutes, legal news, a lawyer directory, an online career center and community-oriented tools such as mailing lists and message boards. The Web site rapidly developed into the leading legal information site on the Internet.

West Group, a Thomson Corporation business unit, recognized FindLaw.com as a powerful tool for reaching legal professionals and for connecting attorneys with people in need of legal representation. In Jan., 2001, FindLaw and its 55 employees became part of West Group. The company enhanced the legal information portal while rapidly developing its law firm online marketing business and client development solutions.

Today, FindLaw.com remains the most popular site for free legal information on the Internet with more than four million legal consumers visiting each month and the largest legal directory available. FindLaw's law firm marketing solutions also dominate with award-winning Web sites, online video, online attorney profiles, search engine marketing and Internet advertising.

With more than 500 employees and $100 million in annual revenue, FindLaw continues to grow and lead the legal market. The company has the largest team of online experts in the industry, a national network of sales consultants and a proven ability to get results for its clients.
