Lawdingo, the fast-growing legal startup that connects lawyers and consumers using online technology, has announced that it has received a further $690,000 in funding.
The site enables people to click a button and speak to lawyer by phone or video.
While it’s free to use for clients, attorneys pay a monthly subscription fee.
Lawdingo began life at the Mountain View-based seed accelerator Y Combinator, then moved to New York City.
Participating investors include Kartik Hosanagar of the Wharton School, Nathaniel Stevens of Yodle, Gene Alston of Groupon, Andrew Moroz of Highbridge Capital, Igor Ryanbenkiy of Altair Capital, and Igor Matsanyuk of IMI.VC.
The company was launched in 2012 by 27-year-old Nikhil Nirmel (below), who was formerly in charge of quantitative research at Yelp.
Earlier this year, the company released a light-hearted promotional video.
