What is MyLegal.com?
Launched in 2009, MyLegal.com is the go-to resource for lawyers and their teams to find professional service providers around the globe. Legal vendor listings include Ratings & Reviews and exclusive discounts that offer valuable cost savings on services to lawyers and law firms.
How does MyLegal.com work?
It’s easy! When you’re looking to hire a legal vendor anywhere in the world, just enter the search criteria — type of service and city or zip code — (ex: process server Minneapolis or process server 55402) to find the listings of matching MyLegal.com vendors. If you’re looking for a “virtual” vendor, where location is not applicable, simply enter the type of service and leave empty the City? field. You can also use the What Service? field to search for the name of a specific vendor.
If there are five or fewer results returned, a Google map will appear, displaying additional matches for your search criteria. There is no fee to search our Legal Vendor Directory.
Why would I use MyLegal.com when I can just Google a service provider?
A Google search requires not only a manual search of vendors, but also requires the user to review each website individually. MyLegal.com aggregates thousands of legal vendors from around the world into one website that includes Ratings & Reviews of the vendor, as well as any discount deals the vendor is offering.
What is a Legal Vendor?
A legal vendor is any individual or company who offers products or services to the legal community. Also referred to as a “legal service provider.”

In what order are search results returned?
MyLegal.com is committed to providing lawyers, paralegals and legal administrators the most effective means of searching and vetting service providers around the globe. When the location of a service is specified in the search criteria, all matching vendors whose office locations are within a 100-mile radius are displayed. When no location is specified, all vendors with matching service categories are returned. In both cases, the ordering is as follows:
- Premier listings with a Legal Vendor Deal and Ratings & Reviews
- Premier listings with a Legal Vendor Deal, no Ratings & Reviews
- Premier listings with Ratings & Reviews
- Premier listings, in alphabetical order
- Basic listings, in alphabetical order
How are legal vendors rated and reviewed?
Anyone who has used the services of a MyLegal.com vendor may post a numerical rating and a written review to any Premier Listing. Additionally, service providers with a Premier Listing may also invite clients to post a review. Ratings & Reviews may not be posted anonymously.
I think a negative review is unfair or incorrect. Can an unfavorable review be removed from my listing?
MyLegal.com does not remove unfavorable reviews based on the content. If you believe a review is unfair or does not tell the whole story, we invite you to post a response to the review. Ratings & Reviews may not be posted anonymously, so it may be helpful to reach out to the client directly to see if anything can be done to rectify the situation.
MyLegal.com is not responsible for the content of any review posted on the site. All reviews are approved in advance by the MyLegal.com team. There are only three reasons we would refuse or remove a vendor review:
- The review contains offensive language.
- We find out that the review is fraudulently posted.
- The person who submitted the review requests that it be removed.
What is a Legal Vendor Deal?
Whether you’re looking for new business from local lawyers or anywhere in the world, you’ll want to consider offering a Legal Vendor Deal as part of your listing. With a Premier listing, you have the option of enhancing your listing with a special discount or creative deal. Prospective clients will contact you to get the deal; you apply the discount at the time of invoicing. There’s no risk, no revenue split, and no referral fees!
I signed up for a Legal Vendor Deal from a MyLegal.com vendor, and I’m not satisfied. What are my options?
MyLegal.com offers its vendors with a Premier listing the opportunity to advertise Legal Vendor Deals to current and prospective clients. MyLegal.com is not involved in negotiating the deals and does not receive any compensation from its legal vendors in connection with the deals. If you are not satisfied, we suggest that you work with the vendor directly to help address your concern. You can also rate your experience with the vendor on MyLegal.com, as well as share with your peers a detailed review.
