Priori Legal, a Manhattan startup that acts as a middleman between small businesses and lawyers, is expanding to Long Island. Business owners fill out a questionnaire about their required legal services on Priori's website, and Priori offers a list of potential attorneys from its network. The business owner and lawyer can then set up a free 30-minute consultation phone call, with Priori managing the paperwork and payment if the lawyer is hired. Attorneys in Priori's network are vetted and have agreed to work at below-market rates for small-business clients sent from Priori, said co-founder Basha Rubin. Priori is currently building its network of attorneys on Long Island and is in talks with about 20 individuals. The expansion to Long Island is concurrent with a move into Westchester, after Priori was tested in Manhattan.
