An online lawyer can help with your legal matter at any stage
For some people who are seeking online legal advice, you may not think about engaging an online lawyer until your matter has reached a critical stage. This might mean that court proceedings have been started or a contract has been provided for a contract review or a dispute is underway.
But no matter what stage your legal matter is at, it can be really helpful to get online legal advice.
For instance. If your legal matter has not reached a critical stage, but you are just wanting some guidance from an online lawyer as to how best to proceed. This can mean that any future legal costs will be kept to a minimum because you have followed that guidance early.
On the other hand, if you do need urgent online legal advice, an online law firm is the best place to go to because they can respond quickly and affordably to meet your legal requirements.
Online legal advice is a convenient way to get legal assistance
Because online legal advice is exactly that – online - this means that you can ask and receive legal advice from the comfort of your own home. You do not need to drive into town or attend any office In order to get the help you need.
Imagine being able to text, email or fill out a contact form for legal advice, being contacted by a lawyer straight away and setting up a phone call or a video call over the internet to discuss your legal matter. It's as easy as that.
Because it is a very convenient way to get legal advice, this can mean lower costs for you.
And it can also reduce stress levels because you can get advice straight away rather than
having to book in an appointment and wait.
Often, legal clients really benefit from receiving legal advice online and having the sense that they are one step removed from their (at times) stressful legal matter.
Online legal advice is affordable
When you're dealing with an online law firm that does not have the overheads of a fancy legal office, those cost savings are passed on for the benefit of clients. Sometimes the cost to cover rent for a legal office can be as high as one-third of the total bill received by a client.
Whether you need help straight away or you are just looking for a legal quote, getting a quote for online legal advice is an affordable way to get specialist legal advice. Clients are often pleasantly surprised at the difference between the cost of an online lawyer and the cost of a traditional bricks-and-mortar office lawyer.
We have previously written an article ‘how much does a lawyer cost?’. That article provides some general guidelines as to how much you can expect to pay for a lawyer in Australia.
For anyone who's looking for help from an online lawyer, affordability will always come into play. If you are getting more legal services for less money, that is another reason why online legal advice can help influence the outcome of your legal matter.
