Although I wanted to refer them to other lawyers, I often lacked the information to do so.
I have created MyAdvice.Legal to help clients understand the nature of their legal problems and to make contact with lawyers who have the expertise and experience to help solve their legal problems.
The site assist clients and lawyers who need to work remotely, perhaps because they live in regional or rural areas. Clients can log on at a time that suits them and lawyers equally can use this site to facilitate flexible working.
Lawyers who list on the site have been asked to commit to “10 Customer Promises" that address common concerns people have about lawyers and their services. MyAdvice.Legal will encourage more transparency about legal services and pricing and I hope this site will encourage lawyers to improve their services and enable the clients who use this site to get the benefit of the best lawyers, the best practice and at the best price.
MyAdvice.Legal will ensure the process is simple from start to finish by helping you to:
MyAdvice.Legal allows clients to see all of the legal talent that might be able to fix their legal issues, and allows them to select the best lawyer they feel comfortable with, at the best price since those lawyers get to bid for the instructions. The lawyers also declare that they:
I hope these 10 customer pledges will result in an improved customer experience for those seeking legal advice on this site. We want your feedback if there is anything we have missed, or that will improve the site!
I am putting myself and my firm on this site so I will be working every day to make MyAdvice.Legal a better experience for clients.
