You can get your portrait at Wal-Mart. You can get a new pair of specs. Now, in Toronto, you can also get a will for $99. The Toronto Star reports that a law firm called Axess Law is now retailing their legal services in selected Wal-Marts.
You can already get a bargain-basement legal will in the United States. But finding these attorneys takes a bit more work than stopping by a counter after you've bought a gallon of Miracle-Gro. (For the uninformed, take a look at ads in your local free weekly.)
The issue, presumably, is finding a price-point that will allow for compensating attorneys and also paying Wal-Mart rent. (Until, of course, a state alters its ethical rules to allow Wal-Mart to deliver legal services directly.)
But while FindLaw says getting legal services at Wal-Mart might happen in the US, I'm predicting that it will. It's simply a matter of time. And once it comes in a Wal-Mart version, look for a slightly pricier version at Target. After all, price signals quality.
