Frequently Asked Questions

Is Legally Yours a law firm?

No we are not a law firm. And that’s a good thing! Rather than accessing only one law firm, with one legal speciality, when you request a match on Legally Yours, you are accessing many lawyers across many firms across many locations. Your legal need is then specifically matched to up to 3 choices that will best fit your need and you can then make a selection based upon the lawyer’s experience and expertise. And best of all, you are guaranteed that every lawyer you are matched with will always tell you up front what you will pay and what will be delivered

How much do I pay?

Using our service is completely free. Our aim is save you time and money by matching you with the most appropriate lawyer or legal professional for your legal matter.

Will my information be kept confidential?

Yes, we will keep your information confidential. The details of your matter will only be shared with the lawyer you request to talk with to seek advice on your legal query and a fixed-fee quote if you want to move forward with your legal matter. The lawyers in our network are also required by law to keep such information confidential. If you would like to know more about how we handle information collected on this site, please review our Policy Privacy.

How can I be sure the lawyers in the network have the relevant experience I require?

Our network of lawyers is large enough that there are multiple lawyers in each areas of law offered by our site. When you request to talk to a lawyer in our network, you will be able to read about their experience and expertise, the types of matters they can assist you with, even watch them on video so you can decide if they are the right fit for you.

What if I can’t decide who to request to talk to?

That’s fine! Just send an email with your contact details to [email protected] and we’ll be in touch to help you with a match.

What if I’m not sure exactly how to request a match to a lawyer?

That’s fine! Just send an email with your contact details to [email protected] and we’ll be in touch to help you with a match.

Which areas of law do your lawyers specialise in?

Whether it’s a personal or business issue, we’ve got you covered. We have a large network of experienced lawyers who specialise in lots of areas of law, including business/commercial, property, family, Intellectual Property, commercial litigation, employment law, estate planning, Wills, building and construction, disputes, immigration law, criminal law and more.

How can Legally Yours save me money?

Most lawyers these days still charge for their services on an hourly basis. Hourly rates can be anywhere from $300 to $1000 depending on where you go and who you select. Even then it’s hard to determine exactly how long your legal matter will take, so it is impossible to know how much it will cost. In this sense, hourly billing can reward poor efficiency, and your costs can skyrocket.

At Legally Yours we believe in value-based pricing or fixed-fees, not hourly rates. Our lawyers provide fixed-fee quotes upfront so you can reduce your legal spend and keep to your budget with confidence.

Using our platform, requesting to talk to a lawyer and then obtaining a fixed-fee quote is completely free, so you have nothing to lose. There is no obligation to go ahead with the legal service, but at a minimum you will know the cost and the process upfront if you do decide to go ahead.

Once I request to speak to a lawyer, how long will it take to receive contact from them?

We guarantee that the lawyer you request to speak to will contact you within 2 business days. You can then request the most convenient time/s for the lawyer to call you to discuss your legal query – no travelling, no waiting around in law firm foyers. You then have the call with the lawyer at the pre-agreed time, and can ask the questions and request a quote during that phone call. You then make the decision if you would like to go ahead or not with the legal service. We’re all about letting you dictate how it works, not the other way around.

What does Legally Yours offer?

At Legally Yours we provide you with a matching service that enables you to talk to a lawyer and receive a fixed-fee quote. It’s the easiest way to know you’re getting the best lawyer with the right experience for a fixed-fee price, and all from the comfort of your home or office. We have spent a long time selecting the right lawyers for our marketplace that will provide you with fixed-fees/value based pricing options and will provide you with a complimentary phone chat.

All you do is hit on ‘Talk to a Lawyer’ button and fill out your search and legal need criteria. You then select from the options we match you with and request a quote from the lawyer that you think best fits your legal requirements. Your matched lawyer will then call you back for a free phone chat and provide you with a fixed-fee quote for the legal service you require. It’s that simple.

Am I pitching against other Legally Yours’ lawyers on the platform?

NO! We don’t believe in pitching lawyers against each other for client work. In all our years of working with community, we have consistently been told by clients that they want to forge a relationship with a lawyer they can trust, who has the right experience and expertise for their need. Client’s don’t always want to pay for the cheapest service, they just want to know upfront what they will be paying and receiving for the quality of legal advice and service they need. Therefore, when a client requests to speak to you through our platform and receive a fixed-fee quote, that client is only speaking to you. At Legally Yours, we are about providing qualified leads and forging strong relationships between clients and lawyers.

How do I set up a profile on the Marketplace?

Once your membership application has been accepted, and you have signed an Agreement and paid the membership fee, a Legally Yours Consultant will be in touch to gather the necessary information and headshots to create a profile for you on your behalf.
