Shpoonkle: eBay for Lawyers

A student at New York Law School has created some waves in the legal establishment by starting a website called Shpoonkle: Justice You Can Afford!.  The site, which has been described as eBay for lawyers, allows lawyers and law firms to bid on legal requests submitted by clients. Lawyers, law students,  and clients looking for a lawyer can register at the site. The Mission of Shpoonkle is "to provide a service that makes it as easy as possible for everyone to find affordable legal representation."  The ABA Journal reports that the legal community's response to the website has been mixed.
