LegalMatch Founder Indicted

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 8:30 pm

Dmitri Shubov, founder of LegalMatch, was indicted yesterday “for allegedly hacking into the voicemail system of an Irvine competitor  Casepost.com] and deleting messages,” according to an AP/ MercuryNews.com report (May 20, 2004).  The article explains:



“Dmitri Shubov, 31, of San Francisco was charged with three counts of unlawful access to store communications and one count of making false statements, Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew Stolper said Wednesday. He faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.”


LegalMatch matches lawyers with potential clients, and has been controversial with many attorneys and bar groups, often for its marketing methods and high upfront fees.  See, e.g., MyShingle’s take; Matt Homan’s post, Why I’ll Never Use LegalMatch; as well as ethicalEsq’s discussion (which, this evening, we were surprised to find copied onto the LegalMatch site.)
