Why We Exist
Some lawyers will tell you that it is too hard to work out exactly what your legal matter will cost you. They will tell you that it is too hard because they don’t know how long your matter will take, when really they don’t want to take any risk that they will underquote and lose money. Instead, they quote hourly rates and when you ask how many hours it might take, they’ll say ‘well how long is a piece of string’. Sound familiar? WE disagree with this proposition entirely. It’s simply not good enough! So at Legally Yours we decided to change the way lawyers quote to clients and also the way they deliver legal services too.
Our mission is to create greater access to legal services. We believe that every person in Australia has the right to have their legal questions answered, or their legal needs serviced, by a qualified lawyer, no matter where you live or what your financial circumstances are. At Legally Yours, we only connect you with lawyers who will tell you upfront how much your legal service will cost. Simple, easy, convenient, and above all transparent delivery of legal services.
Our Happy Clients
“Like most people, I didn’t have anyone who I considered to be ‘my lawyer’ so I was unsure where to turn for support until I was introduced to Legally Yours who connected me with a lawyer with expertise in this field. The process was smooth, the advice was sound and the cost was fixed – I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”
General Manager of Lean Energy
“I worked with the women at Legally Yours when going through the process of selling my business. They cared about the emotional side of selling a business and guided me through step by step what I needed to do to ensure all my legal obligations were met. They made the process easy and affordable while also communicating in a way I understood without the legal jargon. I can highly recommend LegallyYours for all small business owners to simplify the process.”
Founder & Director of Aja Photography
“Legally Yours was a fantastic support for my business. It’s a relief as a small business to have legal work done on a fixed fee basis. Knowing exactly what I’ll be paying and not having any surprises is fantastic. I’d recommend Legally Yours to any small to medium sized business. They are perfect for me and my client base.”
Director of Zibis & Co
“My dealings with Legally Yours have always been seamless end to end. They are extremely responsive, thorough and prompt. It was also fantastic that even though they are fixed fee, they allowed me to review and comment on drafts until I was happy. This focus on service makes me happy to recommend them to all my clients.”
Director of SC Finance
“The Team at Legally Yours provided my business with terrific service, quality work and all for a great guaranteed fixed-fee price. We have been especially pleased with the quick turnaround that would have otherwise cost us a fortune through the traditional legal process model”
Managing Director of Lifestyle Development Services
“We just want to thank you so much for helping us. Thank you for your fabulous service. We really appreciate it and will definitely recommend you to others.”
Founder and CEO of Influencer Hub and Sourcebottle
“We are an online platform-based startup, and found Legally Yours to be the perfect partner for our legal requirements. From a basic website user agreement, to a more complicated agreement with vendors and suppliers. The lawyer referred to us by Legally Yours was very responsive, efficient and totally understand the commercial needs of a startup business.”
Strategy and Business Director of Crimson Bride
“I’ve used Legally Yours for everything from personal estate matters, through to my business. Every time, I’ve been matched with a great lawyer that I could immediately connect with, was quick and always seemed to take that little bit of extra care with me. I also completely appreciated the transparency on costs - and never ever one received a bill for more than the upfront quote I was provided. I can’t recommend Legally Yours enough. If only all lawyers could be trusted like them.”
Founder and Director of The Online Fix
“It can be scary when growing your business and developing business relationships with other people and entities. Working with Legally Yours gave me the confidence to develop new offers and services because I finally felt that I was protected and most importantly that each party understood their rights and responsibilities. Their fixed-fee model allowed me to reach out for legal services before I needed them because I knew exactly what I was going to pay and knew I wouldn’t be getting a scary bill later!”
