Market Analysis Summary

Advocates for Legal Equal Access will be in constant contact with the other legal aid organizations to develop a referral system to support the Portland indigent community.

4.2 Target Market Segment Strategy

Advocates for Legal Equal Access will target the different segments by developing relationships with other legal aid organizations.  By developing a relationship with these organizations, Advocates will obtain new clients when they are unable to serve.

Advocates will also target new clients by developing awareness of itself with different courts in the city so that the court is aware of Advocates and can refer the people to them. 

As long as the proper agencies and organizations are aware of the Advocates, then it will not be difficult to get clients as the legal aid sector has demand that outstrips supply.
