Martindale Hubbell was THE legal directory of attorneys’ until around 2008 or 2009 when the internet hit. That’s where all attorneys why to find attorneys. But it really f’d up with the internet. Didn’t do anything. No consumers even know about it. Only attorneys do – and the young attorneys don’t care, because nowadays everyone (even in house legal departments at corporations) look for attorneys on the internet.
