Shopping for Lawyers at Wal-Mart

Fair warning: this post has nothing to do with employment law. But, I think you'll find it interesting anyway. The ABA Journal is reporting that Toronto Wal-Mart shoppers can now consult on-site lawyers:
The firm charges $99 for a simple will, $25 to notarize a document, and $19 to notarize additional documents. Prices are lower because of the volume, Koke says. The retail sites will also offer services in real-estate law and powers of attorney. Uncontested divorces will be added beginning in the fall. Other cases will be referred to other lawyers.
The on-site law firm, Axess Law, plans to expand throughout Canada over the next four years.
