If Derek Bluford hadn’t come down with strep throat, he never would have tried a smartphone app that allowed him to immediately access a doctor.

The application links people who have legal questions with attorneys seeking clients. Users can ask some questions for free. They can also pay $39 for 15 minutes of legal advice in real time on the app. The app puts the customer face-to-face with the attorney in an on-demand video chat.

The app seeks an attorney near the user, and then it allows the user to select a legal specialty.

Attorneys pay $500 a month to be on the app. The service pays for itself if the attorney takes one call a day, and more than pays for itself if the attorney gets retained by a client, said CEO Derek Bluford.
