Enable Contact from Consumers
The simplest and most credible way for consumers to find you.
When allowing contact from consumers, there are conflict check warnings: "Please do not send confidential or sensitive information. Zeekbeek reminds you that no website, including this one, can guarantee that the information you submit will be privileged or stay confidential. Also, know that no attorney-client relationship is created by your e-mail. The lawyer you are e-mailing is not your lawyer until he or she formally agrees to be your lawyer and can refuse to represent you for any reason." Additionally, consumers are limited in the amount of information they can send to minimize the potential of attorneys receiving confidential information from prospective clients that may create ethics obligations under MRPC 1.6 and/or conflicts with existing or former clients.

MI Appointment Scheduler
SBM members can now easily and conveniently connect with potential clients online. Consumers are now able to request to schedule a consultation directly through a new opt-in calendaring system designed especially for lawyers by lawyers. The new appointment scheduler tool is a first for our State Bar of Michigan directory and is easy to set up and manage. Consumers can sort the listing of attorneys to show only those who are accepting appointments online and their availability. Choices include appointments available within the next four hours, tomorrow, and selected future dates. Once a potential client requests an appointment, a message will be sent to the attorney with the choice to accept, reject, or reschedule the appointment. Consumers can schedule appointments directly from an attorney profile page. To fully take advantage of this tool,opt in to the new appointment scheduler.
