After a long battle with state bar associations over propriety and fee splitting, online legal services organization Avvo will sunset its fixed-fee legal services package, Avvo Legal Services, at the end of July.

In a letter to the North Carolina State Bar Authorized Practice Committee, Internet Brands general counsel B.

Internet Brands acquired Avvo for an undisclosed amount in January 2018.
