LexisNexis, the largest provider of computer-assisted legal research services, has been publishing directories for attorneys and law firms since 1868. These industry-leading hardbound—and more recently Internet-based—directories have allowed lawyers and consumers of legal services to quickly and easily find the right legal professional to handle any matter.


LexisNexis’s, a fundamental industry resource, profiles over one million lawyers and law firms.

Faced with widespread access to legal information, an increasingly mobile reliant audience, and a need to fully engage that audience, LexisNexis wanted an app to extend’s utility to smart phones and tablets. 


Aptara designed and developed an app that allows users to:

  • Search for a lawyer by name, legal specialization, and/or location manually or via a geo-locator 
  • Save search history
  • View exclusive ratings
  • Send an email or call a law firm or lawyer with just one touch
  • Find the lawyer’s office on a map
  • Get driving directions to the lawyer’s office
  • Access complete lawyer and law firm profiles, including background checks
  • Share lawyers’ profiles with your contacts


With the app, lawyers and consumers can search for information on thousands of lawyers whenever or wherever they need to. The app

  • is a one-stop shop for researching, identifying, and communicating with attorneys, and
  • drives significant traffic to and other LexisNexis websites, and
  • enhances the perception of LexisNexis as high-tech, consumer-friendly brand.
