By integrating HTTP/2, Lawyer.com can now deliver search capabilities and matching services at the fastest speeds and highest level of security possible in the industry today over desktop or mobile devices. The HTTP/2 protocol has been supported by such technology industry giants as Google, Facebook and Microsoft.

- Ranked by Amazon Alexa as the fastest online lawyer directory on the market
- First legal tech firm to make its entire website attain SSL-level security

- Unique, innovative matching engine enabling faster, more efficient and more effective connections for consumers seeking attorneys
"Since Lawyer.com's founding, we have adopted the latest technology innovations in seeking to deliver the best possible, most engaging user experience for consumers looking to quickly and efficiently find and hire the best lawyers for their cases," said Lawyer.com Chief Executive Officer Gerald Gorman. "Unlike other online legal directory and services providers that have sought to directly provide paid legal services in place of attorneys, Lawyer.com has always supported the business growth of law practices and our adoption of HTTP/2 is the latest in a series of technology advances that will facilitate mutually satisfying consumer-attorney matching experiences," Gorman added.
